Shennanton SE Cairn is located on the edge of a copse of trees at the A75/B735 junction. The cairn has been fenced off in the corner of a field. It has been extensively robbed of stone consisting of a raised platform up to 3 feet high. It is covered in vegetation including briars and a mature tree sprouting in the E quadrant. There is an area of moss covered stones in the NE quadrant which could be original stones. A large c. 5 feet long moss-covered stone lies S of the tree, possibly a displaced kerb stone. The size and shape of Shennanton SE Cairn is difficult to ascertain due to the ground cover however I estimated it to be an oval cairn with a c. 30 yards diameter.

Shennanton Cairn SE is listed as Canmore ID 62971 (go to Links).

Shennanton NW Cairn lies c. 500 yards NW of Shennanton SE Cairn in unimproved pasture N of the A75 Shennanton straight.
