Notes

A cairn with thirteen stones of the close-set retaining circle still remaining. The evidence of an excavation is seen as a central hollow, 4.5 metres in diameter, approached by an elbow shaped trench from the north. There is a large boulder on the south side of the depression and another in the centre. The cairn has a maximum height of 1.8 metres and the retaining circle an average diameter of 11 metres. A cremation with an urn was found in 1868.
