Notes: Radcliffe: "Possible cist found by RH Bruce on 11th Feb 2016. A stone set vertically across a section of the pound wall, with another stone aligned with the wall, the two giving the appearance of a side and end of a cist. There are two large stones downslope within the pound, possibly another sidestone and capstone. The DNPA archaeologist happened to be on hand, and agreed it is a possible cist." Visited by author on 22/07/19 - looks very much like a cist embedded in a pound wall. There is no HER entry for this site, the enclosed settlement is HER record MDV4952.
