(NT 1072 5840) Cairn (NR)

OS 6" map (1961)

This cairn is situated on the summit of West Cairn Hill. Its outline is largely obscured by three drystone dykes which meet on top of it. It has been heavily robbed and is now reduced to a circular grass-grown mound of stones, about 45ft in diameter and 3 1/2 ft high. An Ordnance Survey triangulation station has been erected on it.
