Description

The monument comprises the remains of a burial cairn of the Bronze Age, situated on the summit of a natural hillock. It measures 15.5m in diameter and 1.8m high. Antiquarian disturbance in the last century revealed human bones. In 1989 a cup marked stone was found a short distance away. The mound will almost certainly cover further burials and a contemporary ground surface. The area to be scheduled measures 30m in diameter, centred on the cairn, as marked in red on the attached map.
