Dimensions (m): 8.0 x 14.0 x 0.5
Notes: Turner E4. oval cairn measuring 12.0m x 8.0m. It is flat-topped apart from a slight hollow in the centre. It appears to have multiple concentric rings of spaced small stones set on edge, with at least six rings being visible on its north side. To the south-east some stones are set at right angles to the rings. Butler in Volume 5 p.157 refers to a 14 x 6 m long cairn on the southern slopes of White Ridge. Presumably he refers to this site.
