Full Description

Clearance cairn (possible dyke).
E end of a 10m long and 1m wide irregular jumble of large boulders, cobbles and pebbles, up to 0.5m high, trending 290 degrees towards the building remains of Feature 019 (above). It is set on level ground, parallel with, and 7m inside the N plantation boundary fence, on bare earth under the tree cover, S of a cleared area. It is conjectural whether this feature is a clearance cairn or a spread tumble of stone which was formerly a dyke. <1>
