A grass-covered cairn, 5.8m. in diameter and 0.7m. high

SX 61467306. This turf-covered cairn lies on a broad slopping shelf on the E slopes of Royal Hill at 387m OD. Its diameter is approximately 5.2m by 4.9m and it has a maximum height of 0.5m a central pit is 2.5m across and 0.2m deep. Some stones and small orthostats protrude through the turf but there is no trace of a kerb or cist. Its relationship to a prehistoric wall (SX 67 SW 68), which extends from both the W and E sides of the cairn, is uncertain. (4)
