A Bronze Age ring cairn and adjacent small cairn located on open moorland, 750 metres north-west of Bumper Castle. The ring cairn consists of a pennanular bank of turf and stones measuring 8 metres by 9 metres externally and 5 metres by 6 metres internally. The bank stands around 0.3 to 0.4 metre high. Approximately 35 metres to the north-east stands a low cairn measuring about 2 metres in diameter. It is thought likely that this cairn was constructed for funerary purposes, given its isolated location and proximity to the ring cairn. Scheduled.
