History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The site on the edge of a terrace gives wide-ranging views over the river and across to the Forest of Birse.
The platform on which the cairn sits is not a natural feature but appears to have been formed by field clearance.
About 0.75 miles to the east is a second cairn of about the same size, and there is a much smaller cairn directly east with a dyke running through it.
The cairn stands about 300m north of the B976 immediately east of Croftfoddie.
There are a pair of stone circles about four miles away; Glassel Dam Wood and Nine Stanes Stone Circles.
