Notes: Butler describes a heather-covered cairn with a pair of slabs visible in the body of the mound. This cairn is not covered in heather but then this photo is taken 20 year on. There are signs of the slabs in the mound so it is probably the same cairn. The HER refers to another cairn 50m due w of this one - the author could not locate that but then the area is very overgrown.
