ND 18792 32303 Cairn. A roughly circular badly damaged cairn, measuring c5.5m in diameter, which is overgrown with gorse. A possible capstone was noted lying on a large heap of stones at the E end of the valley. This area is shown as improved land on the 1st Edition OS map and the stones may reflect 19th- or 20th-century field clearance.
