"This cist with its displaced capstone lies on the edge of the river bank. Vestiges of the small surrounding cairn are now hidden under the turf. The chamber of the cist measures 1.25m by 0.55m and about 0.5m deep; the capstone is 1.5m long, 1.1m wide and 0.15m thick. The south stone has fallen outwards."
