A denuded and otherwise degraded cairn, probably Bronze Age.
The cairn survives as a low mound or platform, roughly 8.0m in diameter and 0.5m high. Excavations in 1952-3 recorded details of a central cist or grave, 1.5m by 0.9m, defined by orthostatic boulders. This had been almost entirely robbed, however, the absence of burnt bone fragments and the presence of a sigle suggestive pottery fragment have suggested an origin in the Beaker period, in the earlier Bronze Age.
