This cairn is situated on a slight rise in a forestry plantation and comprises a central cairn (delineated by a kerb) and an enclosing stony bank (measuring some 14m in diameter over all). The central cairn measures 10m in diameter and twenty-five of the kerbstones still survive; several (on the NE) lean sharply outwards. There must originally have been about thirty graded stones, the tallest and largest being on the SW, where one of them bears four cup-markings (measuring up to 40mm in diameter). The entire area of the cairn within the kerb has been robbed down to the level of the shortest of the kerbstones, and there is evidence for further recent disturbance at the centre. The surrounding platform measures about 0.2m in height. It is not clear whether this is an original feature or has been formed of stones discarded when the central cairn was robbed. Visited by RCAHMS (JRS), 20 April 1989.
