Archaeology Notes

NM94SW 6 9018 4082.

(NM 90184082) Cairn (NR)

This cairn, which stands on a low ridge in an arable field, is heavily overgrown with scrub. It measures at least 23 metres in diameter and stands to a maximum height of 1.8 metres. A considerable quantity of stones has been removed from the top, but the amount of cairn material that survives suggests that the lower levels remain relatively undisturbed.

RCAHMS 1975.
