Originator:Ordnance Survey
Summary:Centred on a NW to SE line of four cairns from 2.7m to 4.0m in diameter and from 0.3m to 0.5m high. Three are separated by 2m to 4m and the fourth and southernmost by 10m which includes the remnant of a reave. All the cairns have been made from the reave by gathering up the stones and all are on its alignment. It seems unlikely that these cairns are the result of clearance simply to form five gaps in the reave and it may be that the cairns have a sepulchral purpose. Found during field investigation.
