From Meams Hill I headed back south until I reached the B955. Take the B951 heading west until the minor road heading south just after the car park for Loch Of Kinnordy. About 1 mile south there is a crossroads, from here walk to the west. The first part of the track has recently planted trees on both sides, not on the OS map. Keep going until open space, on both sides of the track, widens. To the south there is a deer fence. Walk a short distance west and the cairn will shortly appear.

The cairn stands at 15 meters and is 1 meter tall. It is turf covered with one or two bits of cairn poking through. Still it is a nice cairn with lovely views north, views to the south being blocked by the Reedie Strip, a wood.

Still it is much better condition than its friend a wee bit further west.

Reedie 2 (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

The second Reedie cairn is almost 400 meters west of its neighbour. Simply keep following the deer fence and the Reedie Strip.

Sadly this cairn has been battered and shattered. The bumpy remains stand at about 20 meters in width and are over 1 meter in height. Cairn material is strewn everywhere underneath the gorse (jabby things for the more technical of us). Still it has the same views as the first Reedie cairn.

If walking west along the track from Reedie1 look for the first curve in the track, then look south. The cairn is easily spotted and is crowned with the aforementioned jabby stuff.
