Cairnfield occupies an area of moorland to the east of the west-facing escarpment at the top of a slight ridge. It is a group of dispersed cairns ranging from between 2m and 2.5m in diameter. At least two of the cairns appear to be more carefully constructed than the others, one having a formal kerb, the other a dished interior. The other cairns are well formed standing less than 0.5m above the ground. Most appear to be undisturbed. It is not clear if this group represents field clearance, funerary or a combination of both activities. It is believed they are Bronze Age in date. (1)
