The site and form of this cairn suggest a Bronze Age burial cairn rather than one of the numerous clearance heaps which occur nearby.

A possible burial cairn set on summit of a low crest. It measures about 7.5m in diameter and stands to 0.7m in height, surmounted by a small modern cairn. There is no sign of a kerb or cist.
