Details Remains of long cairn; composed of a round cairn and separated on the S from the long cairn by a trench-like hollow, 1.21m above the base of the cairn. The long cairn has its maximum width at the N . The whole seems fairly complete although a hollow has been dug in the long part both on the W and E sides. In 1886 at the S end secondary burials containing cinerary urns were found. The N end is c4.26m high and is divided from the remainder by a transverse hollow, possibly the site of an un-recorded excavation. Modern quarrying into the site of the mound shows it to be built of mainly earth. There is little doubt that both parts belong to one structure.
