Notes

Bronze Age cairn cemetery consisting of a linear cluster of six cairns 0.6m and 1.3m high. Three of the mounds are circular in shape and between 4.5m and 8m in diameter. The remainder are oval with lengths between 5.5 and 13m. Four of the mounds have been robbed and an edge set stone in the centre of the northern cairn may represent the remains of a cist. An earthwork bank lies a short distance upslope of the cairnsand its alignement suggests that it is contemporary with the cairns. Scheduled.
