Somehow and unbelievably Malcolm's Mount still exists to the north side of the busy Broomhill Road in Stonehaven. The cairn, or what remains of it is about 10m wide and possibly 1m tall. Sadly there are no remnants of cists or old Scottish kings. Hard to tell if there are remnants because of all the bramble branches lying all over the place. Originally surrounded by the wall, it now sits on top of a small hillock near a house called Rivendell. A nearby street is also called Malcolm's Mount.

Leave Kirkton Road and take Broomhill Road which heads south west(ish). I parked in the small industrial estate to the right and nipped back up the road, crossed over Broomhill and went through a gap in the hedge.
