Field Visit

this cairn measures 3m by 2.5m and appears to have a bank running from it for 10m in a westerly direction. It stands up to 0.5m in height. Small stones can be see to be eroding out from thetop of the monument.

Burgess 1996, 24

NB there is a discrepancy between the grid references given by the Uig Landscape Survey (above) and by the Coastal Erosion Assessment, so the precise location is unclear. MML 23.1.2008
