More information : (SX 6358 9285) Kistvaen (Remains of)

The sides of the Kistvaen remain and four stones of a containing
circle, two of which are 5" high and two about 2' 6" high. The N
and S stones are finely shaped and can be seen from a long way.
The diameter of the circle is only 5 ft. It must have been a gem
before being mutilated. (1)

SX 63609306. The remains of the cist, almost certainly that noted
by Crawford, consist of two end stones 0.8 metres high and 0.5
metres wide, 1.8 metres apart and oriented north-west/ south-east.
Between these uprights lie two fallen granite side-slabs, 1.5
metres long and 0.5 metres wide. There is now no trace of a
retaining circle. Surveyed at 1/2500. (2)
