Notes: "A well preserved cist, situated on a slight east-facing slope just off the crest of a rounded hilltop. It stands in isolation on a generally stone-free area of rough moorland pasture. The side slabs are each 1.2m long and up to 0.3m thick and the end slabs are 0.55m long, 0.15m wide and 0.4m long, 0.1m wide respectively. The coverstone is up to 1.6m long, 0.9m wide and 0.2m thick. There are no surface indications of either a cairn or mound around the cist." Lethbridge p.103 diagram Cist(B), photo bottom p.105. Butler Round Hill Summit 2 (Cist 2) - Vol. 4.
