At the Essich roundabout on the A8082 (Holm Road) head south and keep going out of Inverness. Keep heading south west until in sight of the beautiful Loch Ashie and pull in just after the reservoir on the east side. This was only safe place to park that we could see.

We jumped the fence on the eastern side to visit the first of what we hoped would be five cairns during a decent walk.

This cairn has wonderful views east, west and south, the north being blocked by the slope up to the road. Only a short walk through non boggy heather, heading towards the north east tip of the loch.

The cairn is about 8m wide and 0.3 tall, with hints of a kerb. We certainly found 3 earthfast stones and large flat stone in the centre, perhaps a capstone to cist.

Certainly a very beautiful site and worth visit just for that.

Visited 20/11/2018.

NH 6293 3600

When discovered in 1970, this was covered in whins. It is now completely covered in everything that could be described as jabby. Therefore, there is a fair chance that the kerb cairn is still there.
