"The cairn lies on a gentle sw slope ne of horseyeatt farm, with a stone row see sx57se/141 running sw from it. The cairn is about 7m in diameter and 0.6m height, partly turf-covered, with a central hollow. The visible set stones within the cairn suggest two or three underlying concentric stone circles. These stones have a maximum height of 0.2m and are predominantly set with their long axes tangential to the circle". Lethbridge pp.19-20, diagram p.19.
