Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


A stone alignment and a cairn with cist lying on a gentle slope near the summit of Lakehead Hill. The stone alignement survives as a single row of at least 11 stones leading westward towards the cairn and cist. The cirn measures 6.7 metres in diameter and is defined by several edge set stones, which in turn surround a large restored cist formed by five substantial upright slabs supporting a capstone measuring 2.2 metre long by 1.55 metres wide and 0.3 metres thick. Scheduled.
