SL 3048 5824. Starkholmes, Cairns. On a steep north-facing slope are two large piles of gritstone rocks, one measuring 6mx4.5mx2.3m (20x15x8ft), the other 9x6x3m (30x20x10ft). Some revetment is visible, but it is partly masked by tumble from the mounds. There are depressions in the top of both piles. Their function is unknown, but the slope is very steep for barrows, or even for field clearance. (1)
