Full Description

Mound with an irregular circular profile measuring 2m x 2m x 0.5m with a slight hollow adjacent to its western side which is too small to be convincing as a source for the mound material. The fabric of the mound is firm and fairly stony and it may be a small cairn associated with the Kittuck Meads stone setting (MSO6881). [1-2]
