White Cairn, Beoch Hill is a robbed cairn on rough moorland near the summit of Beoch Hill.
I parked at the Observation Post at NX 1093 6679 on the road to Penwhirn Reservoir. I headed W across rough ground over a shallow valley onto Beoch Hill. The moorland became drier at the summit of the hill. White Cairn, Beoch Hill required a GPS to find the low lying cairn, hidden in a patch of long grass. A scattering of white stones and a central clearing is all that remains.
Canmore ID 60690 states that it "had been almost obliterated by 1911."
