Full Description

NH91NE 2 9502 1795.

A cairn known as Carn na Feola is situated on the moor to the E of the Mill of Kincardine. It stands on a terrace and is surrounded by an earthen rampart. A stone cist is said to have been found there in 1866 containing the bones of a man, woman and child. There are smaller cairns and remains of hut circles round about.
J M Mathieson 1953.

There are no traces of hut circles or cairns in the area to the E of Mill of Kincardine (Mullingarroch Mill at NH 9479 1812, OS 6").
However at NH 9502 1795 there is a conspicuous natural knoll around which are numerous natural banks and depressions. This is possibly Carn na Feola but the name is not known locally and Mathieson (1953) stated that he had not seen it. His information was derived from "In The Shadow of The Cairngorms" (Forsyth).
Visited by OS (R L) 26 September 1969.
