Notes: "supposed cairn reported, but not found after considerable search. The whole slope of the hill s of the summit is covered by a clitter of bare and turf covered granite boulders, giving it a very hummocky appearance. It seems possible that one of these large turf covered bumps may have been mistaken for a cairn" ? NMR refers to Grinsell 23, see also 439750
