(NC 6898 4135) Cairn (NAT)

OS 6" map, (1981)

The site and form of this cairn suggest a Bronze Age burial cairn rather than one of the numerous clearance heaps which occur nearby.

H Fairhurst 1969.

A possible burial cairn set on the summit of a low crest. It measures about 7.5m in diameter and stands to 0.7m in height, surmounted by a small modern cairn. There is no sign of a kerb or cist.

Visited by OS (J B) 7 August 1978.
