Directions to Millmoan Hill Cairn

There is a minor junction off the A77 at NX 0820 7530, c. 80 yards SW of the Dupin Farm junction on the Glen App straight. There is room for one car to park at the locked gate. It is the start of a forest track winding uphill for c. 1.3 miles to a modern fire tower. Millmoan Hill Cairn is located c. 100 yards S in a wide clearing. My route can be viewed on Millmoan Hill Cairn. (I saw several deer grazing on my way back as this is a road less travelled.)

Millmoan Hill Cairn is an isolated site surrounded by forestry, c. 1 mile E of Glenapp Church in South Ayrshire. A large sheepfold has been constructed round the cairn using original stones, leaving the W arc clear. A line of scattered stones is visible on the W arc. The N arc has been bisected by the NE and NW enclosures. A large circular hollow has been excavated in the SE quadrant measuring c. 4m across and 1m deep. Canmore ID 60913 states that the mound measures "up to 21m in diameter and 1.8m in height".
