Notes

Three Bronze Age round cairns. One is a turf covered cairn which measures 5.7m by 4.7m and 0.4m high. The second is a circular cairn 3.5m across and 0.3m high with some stones protruding from the covering turf. The third is a slightly elongated cairn 5.7m by 5m across and 0.4m high. It is turf covered, stone and earth content being exposed in a trench dug to ground level from the north west to the centre. The cairns have no formal construction features, but there is no ground evidence of agricultural activity that might provoke clearance. There is evidence of casual excavation but this does not appear to be recent.
