NR 3825 4595 In April 2019, detailed topographic and electrical resistance surveys were carried out on the site of a probable SW-NE orientated Neolithic chambered cairn (NR34NE 35).

The kerb of the cairn survives at the south end, whilst the extensive robbing has occurred elsewhere with some of the larger stones visible in the dykes at the either side of the adjacent track. Previous work identified two later buildings constructed over the remains of the cairn. The survey identified remains of a probable third building set against the remaining standing façade stone at the north end of the cairn.
