This massive round cairn of bare stones is spectacularly sited at the edge of a hill terrace with wide views across the River Feugh and up into the Forest of Birse. It is 27m in d iameter and 4.5m high, but the platform on which it sits is probably the result of field clearance and ploughing. The cairn is intervisible with another of similar size c 1 km to the east (NO 668933), while the dyke immediately to the east runs over a smaller cairn.
