Unknown, MIGRATED RECORD - MONUMENT PROTECTION PROGRAMME DATA (Migrated Record). SDV331.

The nw part of the mound has seen limited damage, probably as a result of partial robbing. This cairn may contain burials, but the mound does form part of a group which most likely represent stone clearance connected with cultivation of the area (mpp).
