Full Description

Circular cairn 3.4 m in diameter. Mostly basal quartzite but some gniess evident.
On sloping ground within major erosion area. Views W and S to Kyle of Durness.
Probably a clearance cairn as no definable structure to it but could be a tumbled burial cairn.
Recommendations: Continue monitoring adjacent ground to note further associated elements (if clearance cairn) and further monitor cairn itself in case it is funerary. <1><2>
