Notes

Bronze Age cairnfield on Howdale Moor. Approximately 25 cairns, varying in diameter from approximately 5 to 2 metres, were recorded following a wild fire in 2003 which destroyed the ground vegetation on Howdale Moor. It is possible that some of the larger mounds may be burial mounds.

Regarding the Grey Horse Stone just below the cairnfield it looks like at some stage it has been utilized as a waymarker or guidestone . It has the initials HD and a directional arrow engraved on it . Also below the arrow is the number 19
