Cairn with double or multiple ring. Butler Cairn 3 just to the west of the stone row, Butler Cairn 4 is just to the east. A flat topped turf-covered cairn 9.0m in diameter and 0.7m high, in good condition. Settings of Stones in and around the structure suggests a complex cairn circle. The author counted 17 stones in the circle around this cairn. This is difficult to see in the photo as most are concealed under vegetatio, the stone row can be seen in the background. Also visible towards the centre of the circle is a rectangular pit which is probably evidence of excavation. Turner F22, Type Fii
