Site Description A ring cairn located on a west-facing natural terrace at 440m OD, overlooked on higher ground to the immediate east. The structure seems originally to have been formed by an arc of large slabs set upright (but now fallen and discontinuous) around three quadrants of a circle about 11m in diameter set either in a bank or, more likely, acting as an outer kerb to it. The ring is open to south-east quadrant. The centre is occupied by a modern pit.

D.K.Leighton, RCAHMW, 5 May 1999
