Clearance cairn.
Grass-covered clearance cairn set on a level, grassy meadow with traces of plough lines trending 006 degrees and faint traces of earlier, more widely spaced rig and furrow cultivation. The clearance cairn forms a 6m x 3m oval, trending parallel to the later plough lines and is 0.6m high. Through the grass cover, occasional large boulders protrude and, in a rabbit burrow, rounded cobbles are visible. <1>
