Notes: Butler Vol. 4. Map 63.5 (diagram p.215). "A robbed cist within a cairn on a gently sloping NE-facing moorland hillside. A stoney cairn 6.0m N-S by 5.5m E-W and 0.3m high contains the cist, approximately 0.8m wide, 0.3m deep and of indeterminate length and orientation. The capstone, 1.4m by 1.3m largely obscures the cist, with only the ?NE end stone being visible." Lethbridge diagram p.99 photo top of p.99.
