NH53SW 47 centred 5101 3239

Three small burial cairns lie some 180m to the NNW of the barrow cemetery at Garbeg (NH15NW 15.00). They are situated on the crest of a grass-grown ridge at the northern fringe of the scatter of small cairns that extends around the hut-circle group NH 53 SW 11. The southernmost cairn (URQ97 142, NH 5101 3239) measures 3.5m in diameter over a kerb of boulders up to 0.4m in height; the body of the cairn has been robbed. The second, which lies to the N, is also circular (URQ97 141) and measures 5m in diameter by 0.2m in height; it is enclosed by a shallow ditch interrupted by a causeway on the S. The third (URQ97 140), some 10m ESE of the second, is sub-rectangular on plan, measuring 4.2m from NE to SW by 3.6m transversely and 0.3m in height; an upright slab about 0.2m in height protrudes from the cairn on the NE.
