The remains of three cairns, all ruined and with some earth content, but with formal stone structuring. The first at SW 35782983 has an overall diameter of 9.5m, and is now visible as a perimeter rim of small stones about 3.5m wide and 0.3m to 0.4m high. The second at SW 35792983 has an overall diameter of 8.5m, with a rim bank of small stone 3m wide and 0.5m to 0.9m high. In the north west quadrant two kerb stones protrude from the bank. The cairn has a central hollow 2.5m across and 0.5m deep. At SW 35792982 is an exceedingly poor example appearing as a circular depression 4m across and 0.1m deep with a possible slight rim bank on the north.
