Field Visit

Date 2 May 1974

Event ID 1105453

Category Recording

Type Field Visit


A robbed cairn, 10.0m in diameter, set centrally on a stony platform 14.0m in diameter and 0.3m high. The platform seems too regular for spillage, and is probably an original feature. The cairn is surrounded by an almost complete kerb of contiguous upright stones which are graded, gradually reducing in size towards the W where the three largest are laid on edge, suggesting an affinity with recumbent stone circles. Most of the cairn infill has gone, and a recent howk in the centre has revealed no trace of a cist, but has upcast several broken pieces of white quartz and some chips of similar material. Resurveyed at 1/2500.

Visited by OS (AA) 2 May 1974.
