Archaeology Notes

NR34SW 16 3225 4476.

What may be the remains of a burial-cairn lie on the false crest of a hill 270m N of Upper Cragabus and 450m NW of NR34SW 12. The partly grass-covered mound of stones stands up to 1.2m in height with a diameter of 17m from NW to SE; its N sector has been removed by ploughing. A line of large boulders exposed on the NW perimeter may be part of an original kerb.

RCAHMS 1984.
