Head west from the village of Glenkindie (A97) taking the second entrance, to the north, to Glenkindie House. Pull in at the first gate to the north. The souterrain is in the fenced clump of trees in the middle of the field.

It is in excellent condition as the locals said, being some 10 meters in length and 1.8 meters tall. Once upon a time a cairn covered this site but it has long since vanished leaving the fantastic site unblemished. All the details are in the Canmore link below.

Wonderful site, wonderful start to the day albeit a very early start.
