The cairn with the horrible masts in the background.


This is an amazing places, if not for the cairn, at least for the views.
The cairn itself is buried under a thick layer of brambles and heather and it's hard to make it out.
We left the car at the beginning of the path and after a 800 metres walk with a rise of 50 metres we got to the top oh the hill. The cairn is well hidden and we were going to give up when we found it, right behind the fence of the radio masts.
It has a diametre of about 14 metres and it's about 2 metres high. The entrance faces northwest 320°.
