"Northern of two turf covered cairns of 19.5 metres diameter by 1.2 metres high. Slightly mutilated on its western side by military operations, otherwise in good condition". Visited by author 19/02/2023. Quite a substantial cairn. Shows the same L-shaped trenching on the western side as found on the 3 (North of Row) reported cairns 4121-4123. HER suggests the trenching is from military activities.
