The Bell Knowe, a Bronze Age cairn, is slightly to the south of Rhynie on the A97, eastern side. Best to park the Rhynie grave yard, complete with Pictish stones (one with cup marks). The cairn is unmissable. However at the moment walking to the cairn is impossible as the surrounding land is owned by the manse, as the occupant at Coach House said. By this he mean't the Church of Scotland and is open between April and October. The site is surrounded by a deer fence and several padlocked gates. There was a lot of ribbons and such like attached to the fence, votive offerings perhaps.
