on the broad summit of Royal Hill.
The cairn has overall diameters of 7.4m E to W, and 6.5m N to S, and
is about 0.5m high. It is turf covered, but the tops of three stones
of an inner retaining circle are exposed to a height of 0.3m. The
largest is 1.1m long and 0.2m thick. Towards the E edge of the cairn
there is a part buried post type stone 0.9m long and 0.3m in section

W end stone 0.5m long and 0.25m thick.(2).
