Exist: Yes
Record: Unique
Record Source: Butler
Cist Class: Maybe
Cairn Class: Yes
Dimensions (m): 6.0 x 0.4 C?
Notes: This cairn may also have headed a stone row but only one slab remains. At the centre of the cairn there is a flat slab which was probably the cover of a cist [Butler]. This area has very many patches of gorse that look like they could conceal a mound but could just be vegetation. This makes identifying claimed cairns very difficult. A mound could be identified on Lidar at SX 64810 59670 - this fits closely with both Butler's location and with the Garmin location of the object in the photo.
