Full Description

The S walls of the circle have been disturbed, possibly to provide stones for the Tup Park wall which was built c1830, and a smaller structure has been formed within its W side. There is a group of heather-covered small cairns to the W on the low knoll above it. Information from Marjorie MacInnes, October 2010. <1>
