On a gentle slope leading up the Blar Nam cliffs is a circular, moss, bracken and turf covered, stoney mound which may be a chambered cairn. It has a slight central depression suggesting a collapsed chamber and is constructed of uneven, sub-angular gathered rubble. There are a number of larger stones averaging 0.50m by 0.30cm by 0.15cm on the NW side, which may be kerb stones. A possible horn exists on the north north west side although this feature is indistinct and may be due to collapse.

The mound is surrounded by natural mounds on its N, E and S sides and 50m NE of it are two relatively flat areas, 15m x 7m aligned N/S, which are possibly prepared platforms. 100m north of the cairn is a collection of eight clearance cairns.
