Summary : This site was recorded by the RCAHM in 1926 as the remains of a partly buried cromlech consisting of a capstone 7 x 5 feet, apparently on two supports with the possible capstone of a second cromlech (PRN 12094) lying to the east and largely concealed by a hedge. When visited by the Ordnance Survey in 1966 the burial chamber was recorded as consisting of a capstone, 2m x 1.3m x 0.3m, raised 0.6m on one leaning and three upright side slabs and situated on the remains of a barrow 22m in diameter. The chamber is 3m long, 2m wide and stands to a height of 0.5m, with an apparent opening to the WNW. A number of large stones lie near the chamber within the hedgebank. Barker suggests these to be the remains of a second chamber which were both incorporated into an elongated cairn c.15m in length (1992: 31-2). Another chambered tomb, PRN 2409, is located c.750m to the NNW of this site at Garn Turne, with another, PRN 2412, c.1.5km away to the NNE. N Cook PFRS 2004
