Full Description

Stone Circle (OE) (Remains of) OS 6"map, (1938)

Ussie: On the crest, but not the summit, of a ridge stand a confused cluster of megalithic uprights within a disturbed and much denuded cairn.
V G Childe 1944.

Orkney-Cromarty; polygonal. The cairn is so denuded now, that it is impossible to estimate its original size and and form. Seven stones of the chamber remain more or less in position; but it is difficult to interpret the remains. Other large slabs lie about site.
A S Henshall 1963.

As described above. One large stone at NH 53045650, has 7 distinct cup marks on it.
Re-surveyed at 1/2500. Visited by OS (R D) 20 January 1963.

The mound of this Orkney-Cromarty Cairn has been almost entirely removed, but the remains of what has probably been a polygonal chamber are still visible.
RCAHMS 1979, visited September 1978.
