NN70NE 10 7618 0670

This cairn is situated on the spine of a ridge to the S and W of an unnanamed tributary to the Bracklin Burn. It measures 53.5m in length from WNW to ESE and tapers from 14.8m in breadth at the ESE end to 8.5m at the WNW. The cairn stands 1.5m in height and there are two upright slabs, set transversly to the line of the cairn, in the W half of the body of the cairn. Within the extensively robbed ESE end of the cairn there are two large slabs lying flat which may represent the remains of a chamber.
