This chambered cairn is situated on the leading edge of a terrace in peat moorland and is largely as planned and described by Henshall. The cairn material has been heavily robbed for the construction of an Iron Age round house that overlies its W end (NF77SW 24). At its E end, the orthostats of its once impressive facade have fallen and lie displaced, those on the S originally forming a near continuous line of six slabs reducing in height towards the outer edge of the cairn. The chamber, entered from the E, comprises five compartments and is set on a slight curve, though it is not central to the surviving cairn material.
