Notes

A small group of at least four cairns forming a compact cairnfield, interpreted as evidence for prehistoric land clearance for settlement and agriculture. The cairnfield occupies a relatively well drained location standing on the east flank of a ridge of moorland. The cairns stand on the east side of the ridge and range from 2 metres to 5 metres in diameter. The cairns appear to be undisturbed and are relatively small and stand in a stone cleared area of moorland indicating that they are clearance measures than funerary structures. Scheduled.
