Notes: Butler Homerton Hill N. Vol. 2. Map 43.15 (diagram Vol. 5. p.177). "A small, disturbed cairn containing three edge set stones of a cist ... The turf covered cairn measures 3.5 x 3.1m and 0.3m max. height. The top and north side of the mound has been disturbed exposing the three in situ cist stones. The cist measures 0.8 x 0.6m and 0.3mdeep. It is now open to the north. A large stone lying flush with the ground lies immediately north east of the cairn and probably represents the missing endstone or the coverstone". Lethbridge diagram p.156 and photos p157.
