Take the A712 turn off the A75. Take the second left for Kirroughtree /Conifers Lodges, a single track road with passing places. After 500 yards there is a passing place at NX42646579 where you can stop safely.
Kirroughtree House W cairn is visible 200 yards SSW.
It is around 20 yards across with a large tree growing out of the mound and an outline of a circular stone enclosure. The summit is stony and grass-covered with no visible cist.
The cairn itself and its lower location make it less impressive than its neighbour, Kirroughtree House E.
