Description :
Grass-covered mound composed mainly of small thin pieces of sandstone (mostly < 0.3m); one large slab at S side might possibly be the remains of a kerb. Edges of mound ill-defined; two large shallow cuttings and one smaller one in S side; modern cairn on top, and smaller construction to W. Monument Warden description of 1986 notes a ditch on the N side; this was not apparent. There is a slight cutting on the N slope of the mound, but this is a later disturbance rather than a ditch.
