SX 62867116. The cairn and cist lie in rough moorland pasture on a peat-covered gentle hillslope.

The cairn measures 4.6m in diameter and 0.3m in height with a number of small earthfast stones around its perimeter, possibly vestiges of a kerb. A narrow excavation trench extends NW from the cist, with the spoil dumped on the S part of the mound.

The cist is 0.6m deep and 1.2m long, the NW end is 0.4m wide and SE end 0.6m wide; the NW end-slab, said by Burnard (1) to be wedged in the bottom cannot be seen. The coverstone, resting on the NE side, is 1.6m by 1.3m at its extremeties.

This cist and its near neighbour (SX 67 SW 32) are not intervisible. (5)
