SX 58546445. A disturbed, turf covered cairn measuring 4.2m N to S by 6.0m and 0.5m high. A cist has been exposed near the E fringe of the mouund and measures 0.65m by 0.7m and 0.3m deep. The former coverstone is partially buried to the W of the cairn's centre. The ovoid shape of the cairn and the presence of the cist so close to the margin suggests that it has been heaviy disturbed with much material removed from the E side and dumped to the W. There is no evidence to suggest the former presence of a kerb.
