I parked mid-way between Oliverbank and Arnbathie Cottages near a small wood. Heading straight south I jumped the fence and headed straight for site(s). A nice gentle climb.

The four poster is near a fallen stone row and consists of two larger stones and two earthfast smaller stones, along with some field clearance.

Not much to look at but the cup marks and stone row make it an interesting place to visit.

Great views to south, to north east Law Hill Fort.

According to Canmore, the four poster measures less than 3m across, and contains 2 recumbent boulders on the SW and NW, and two smaller earth-fast boulders, both broken. The NW stone has 3 cup marks on the upper surface.

And that's almost exactly what is here. It lies at the SW end of the stone row, and the view up to the NE is quite spectacular.
