A ruined cairn is located above the south bank of Nant Tarw, to the east of one of a pair of stone circles (NPRN 104).
It consists of two distinct areas of loose stones separated, and surrounded by, turfed-over, uneven ground. Loose rubble lies on the south-east and a larger spread on the west, no more than 0.4m high. The area of the site measures 17m (E-W) by 10m. Despite its ruinous condition, the cairn's proximity to two stone circles suggests a Bronze Age date for the mound.
