Of the three cairns on Black Hill one is covered in gorse and furze, NJ46004288, a second has vanished NJ46264291 leaving a third at NJ46284291 as the sole survivor.

It has also taken a battering but still survives at 4m wide and 0.3 tall. Traces of a kerb are visible and the centre has been dug into. Situated on the shoulder between the Black Hill and the Hill Of Milleath the cairn has views of Knock Hill to the north and Tap Of Noth to the south.

We parked at bottom of the hill near the Mains Of Cairnborrow, on the A920, and headed straight up the hill through the wind farm. The cairn is on the east side of the hill. It was then on to see if anything remained of the Hill Of Milleath RSC.
