Cairn, Tighnaleac: A mutilated cairn about 11 m in diameter is situated on the summit of a knoll about 160 m N of the cairn described on NH 44 NE 11. (This cairn, and NH 44 NE 11 both fall within the settlement and field system described on NH 44 NE 10, q.v.)
No cairn is identified in the area. There is a scatter of stones at NH 4557 4563, but this is almost certainly stone clearance associated with the hut circles and field system described on NH 44 NE 10.
