Full description

Greeves, T. A. P., 2019, Pair of cairns near the summit of Gibbet Hill (Worksheet). SDV362740.

In December 1993 Greeves recorded two ring cairns on the very top of Gibbet Hill. Both were disturbed. One or other may relate to MDV3202 (the former has been recorded with this record), but they may also be distinct monuments in their own right.
This cairn is in the form of a very slight sunken ring about 15 metres in diameter, with its centre being about 40 metres north-east of the trig point. A line of pits cuts through its west side. SX 50338117 (map calculation).
