OS 6"map, Inverness-shire, 2nd ed., (1903).

At the site of this supposed stone circle there is a low mound of stones, for the most part turf-covered, measuring 17.0m in diameter and 0.5m in height. It is situated on the edge of boggy ground, which was probably originally a small loch, and has the appearance of a robbed cairn.
