SK 27956645. A single cairn, 8.0 x 7.5m in diameter, to the south of cairnfield SK 26 NE 41. It is very near extensive quarrying and has been somewhat disturbed. It has a fine cist built of 6 slabs exposed at the centre; the capstone is missing. There are traces of 2 possible cairns elsewhere in the mound. (1)
Scheduled. A mound of stones and turf measuring approximately 8m x 9.5m standing about 0.5m high. Well preserved apart from some central disturbance that reveals a central chamber. The western side of the cist has been removed. The capstone is still present but displaced to the south. The chamber measures 1.15m long and averages 0.70m wide and is now filled with rubble. The exterior appears to be mainly intact. (2)
