Notes: A hollowed-out cairn measuring 6.5m N to S by 6.4m and 0.9m high. There are no traces of a cist though some protruding stones on the E side may indicate the presence of a former kerb. A stone-lined hollow 2.5m in diameter and 0.6m deep lies in the centre of the mound and probably represents its reuse as a military training feature.
