Originator:Ordnance Survey
Summary:Cairn which has been incorporated in a boundary bank. The cairn measures 8.2m E-W by 6m N-S. The S half has been partly removed exposing a cist oriented NW-SE which measures 0.9m by 0.65m by 0.95m deep. The coverstone and the SW side stone have been displaced. There is no evidence of a second cist. There appears to be 3 concentric and roughly equidistant rings of upright slabs around the cist, and these diminish in height from the centre, being approximately 0.9m, 0.5m and 0.2m high. Between the rings there is an infill of stone and earth.
