Notes: "A single stone row, length 157 metres, spacing 1.0 metres, starting on the east with a cairn, diameter 6.7 metres, previously opened. The first stone of the row lies 18 metres west of the cairn's centre; there has been considerable robbery for the benefit of modern stone walls. The row clearly extends for 157 metres from the centre of the cairn, but with long intervals between the last stones. The stones are small, the highest being 635 millimetres."
