Notes: NMR states "A hut circle, not a cairn circle". This is almost certainly not a cist. "The measurements do not conform to those of Prowse but nothing else can be seen in the vicinity. It is most unlikely that these stones represent the remains of a cist, but are a natural occurrence." (see also duplicate HER record 5894 and SiteID=2547). This "cist" entry was listed by Dixon, however, it seems a dubious entry. This is not listed by Butler, the relevant map is Vol. 2. Map 29.9.
