Exist: Yes
Record: Unique

Cairn Class: No
Notes: Just N of W end of stone row 22: cairn claimed by Rowe (1896, 191), considered a natural hillock. From a visit to the site on 18/5/19 it would appear to be natural although the side of the mound may be the result of earth works, or a cutting, perhaps from the historic period, it is not far from an area of stream working. Seems an unlikely prehistoric cairn.
