Memsie Cairn


Nearest Town: Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire

OS Grid Reference: NJ 976 620

Directions: On the B9032 between the A90 and the A981, just south of Fraserburgh. Signposted, free entry.

Site Notes: These places are huge-after Bieldside yesterday, this one has a better view, but still has a house about 3 inches away from it.
You may think its just a pile of stones, but this monster can be seen a mile off, and there’s some beautiful quartz pieces scattered over the cairn.
Not worth a special visit perhaps, but if you’re visiting the circles in this area, its got to be worth a stop.
