Archaeology Notes

NX36SW 3 3377 6245.

(NX 3377 6245) Cairn (NR).

OS 6" map (1957)

A large circular cairn, about 70' in diameter, so much robbed that it is very doubtful that the interment remains undisturbed.

RCAHMS 1912, visited 1911

On a small knoll in undulating ground is a cairn surviving as a grass-covered stony mound measuring 27.0m N-S, 23.0m E-W and 1.8m high. Although the centre has been partially robbed the burial is probably intact.

Resurveyed at 1:2500.

Visited by OS (TRG) 6 July 1976
