Notes

A Bronze Age cairn located in a prominent position in open moorland. Its size, relative isolation, and position in the landscape indicate that it is a funerary monument. The cairn is slightly ovoid in shape and measures 18 metres by 15 metres and stands 0.7 metres high. In the centre of the cairn are small depressions which may be minor, undocumented excavations or the results of minor, undocumented excavations or the results of stone robbing. Apart from the depressions, and minor damage to the sides of the cairn, it is a well preserved example and is therefore likely to retain undisturbed burial remains. The monument has a complex structure consisting of a flat-topped platform with an inner cairn of approximately 11 metres diameter situated on top of it. Scheduled.
