2. This is one of the best suriving cairn and cist in the Blaen-Glassffrwd area. It was partially surveyed by the RCAHMW in 2005 as part of a wider landscape survey of the area. The shape and size and the position of a number of kerb stones suggest that the cairn may have been enalrged at an unknown date.
