2) A large cairn at about 1300ft above sea level in a natural depression falling gently to the S and joining the head of the valley of the Afon Tafolog. The cairn is much ruined but seems originally to have been oval or rectangular with a large cist on its N side. The cist is 58ft long and seems to have been about 4ft wide, but the side stones are much displaced. Many of the surface stones have the appearance of having been disturbed.
Description based on GAT SMR record.

3) Site as described when visited during Upland Survey in 2004. 2004.03.30/OAN/PJS
