At the published site, immediately to the rear of a cottage, there are the remains of a large cairn. The original diameter of the cairn was about 25.0m, but it has been mutilated on the SW (probably to provide material for field walls close by) and now measures 16.5m E-W by 11.5m. transversely. It reaches a maximum height of 2.5m against the house.

Visited by OS (A S P) 22 June 1961
