Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
A small cairn of prehistoric origin lies within an abandoned post-medieval field system (MDE9007). It is roughly circular with a diameter of 8.4 metres, stands to 0.3 metres in height, is composed of small stones and earth and is turf covered. It occupies the crest of a slight natural scarp, and so appears more substantial from the downslope or northern side. Surveyed at 1:2500. [1-3]
