Full Description

There are about ten small cairns, measuring up to 4m in diameter and 0.4m in height, situated at the SW end of a spur. The improved ground to the S of the cairns is enclosed by the remains of an earth-and-stone bank, within which slight rig can be seen. Short lengths of banks, possibly part of the same system, lie in unimproved ground to the W and NW of the cairns.
