This small cairn is situated just off the main road through the Sma’ Glen in woodland, to the east of the Saddlin’ Mare standing stone.
Measuring approximately 7.5m in diameter, and 1.0m in tall at its heighest point, the cairn is now now covered with grass, but several large stones can be seen through the turf defining the perimeter.
There appears to have been some confusion regarding the use of the names Clach Ossian, Giant’s Grave and Soldier’s Grave over the years. The Soldier’s Grave next to Clach Ossian further up the glen is sometimes wrongly referred to as the Giant’s Grave.
