It is about 3ft 6ins in length and 2ft at its broadest; the depth

The cairn is 13.5m in diameter and up to 0.5m high. Its top has
been badly disturbed and in the centre there is a stone filled
hollow which may have contained a cist. There is no trace of a
cist "20ft from the cairn" as recorded by Brent.
