Full description

Greeves, T., 1980, Cairns (Personal Comment). SDV251847.

Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division, 1980, SX57SE128, SX57SE128 (Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division Card). SDV251848.

Visited on 28th June 1980. two cairns noted by Greeves are situated on a southeast slope of a conifer plantation. One is composed of a pile of rubble 3 metres long by 1.1 metres wide by 0.6 metre high and is almost certainly a clearance heap. The other is a right angled bank of rubble 0.5 metres high piled against and on the top of four massive slabs, two upright and two fallen. It could be clearance but heaped against what possibly are the remnants of a hut circle.
