A prehistoric kerbed platform cairn situated near Black Carn on the northern coastal margin of Gweal Hill on western Bryher, in the north west of the Isles of Scilly. The cairn survives with a sub-circular mound of heaped rubble and earth, 6 metres in diameter, truncated along its north north east side by the coastal cliff. The mound rises 0.2 metres high on the surface but the exposed cliff section reveals its height of 0.5 metres above its contemporary ground surface. The exposed mound rubble is generally 0.2 to 0.3 metres across. The mound rises to a flattened platform 4.5 metres in diameter whose perimeter is defined by a kerb of raised slabs. The cairn is scheduled as an ancient monument.
