This chambered long cairn, which has been built on a platform or terrace on a steep SW-facing slope 400m SE of Kilmichael farmsteading, was largely obscured by dense gorse on the date of visit. Features that were visible included the axial burial-chamber, a portal stone and part of the facade at the N end, two lateral burial-chambers, one entered from the W side of the mound, the other from the E, and trenches and spoil-heaps from excavations. Neither the bronze age cist nor the medieval corn drying kiln were identified. Two cup marks, both measuring at least 50mm in diameter and 10mm in depth, are visible on one of the former roofing slabs of the axial burial-chamber, which now lies 4m to the NW of the chamber.
