The remains of this cairn consist of a circular, stony bank, about 20 yds in diameter, broken by a track across it, in the corner of a grass field. Its interior contains stony patches, and a large boulder lies on its NW side.

This cairn is situated in the corner of a field 50m NW of the Standing Stones of Glenterrow (NX16SW 8). It measures about 18.5m in diameter
