Remains of a burial cairn, probably dating to the Bronze Age, situated on a prominent local knoll on the open moorland of Mynydd Isaf. Grass covered and circular on plan, measuring about 17m in diameter and up to 1/2m in height. Much scattered stone covers the slopes of the natural knoll upon which the cairn has been built.
