"much disturbed". Alleged cairn circle. NMR record states "At SX 56897029, a felled conifer currently obscures much of what appears to be a hut circle rather than a cairn, situated on a south-east slope near a valley bottom. (Identification as a cairn may have originated with H. Breton)." Idenitified as a round house in the HER. This record is marked as a duplicate as it replicates PWD record SiteID=8769.
