Exist: Yes
Record: Unique

Cairn Class: No
Dimensions (m): 8.0 x 0.5
Notes: Sited on a hill slope at the juncion of two reaves. 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. The author looked for this cairn on 20/04/2019 and found this. The mound is long and thin and consistent with a fragmentary section of a reave rather than a cairn.
