Not located. A small cairn was found by I K Anderson, near Homer Red Lake on 5th June, 1905. It was 4 feet in diameter and 2 feet high at the centre. There was no stone circle. Burnt earth was first found within one foot of the surface and afterwards more burnt earth, a good quantity of charcoal, some ash and one good worked flint with a remarkably sharp edge (a small semicircular scraper - R H Worth)
