Notes: Butler Royal Hill Summit Vol. 4. Map 65.2 (diagram Vol. 5. p.185). "The cairn 7.4m E to W, and 6.5m N to S, and about 0.5m high. It is turf covered, but the tops of three stones of an inner retaining circle are exposed to a height of 0.3m. The largest is 1.1m long and 0.2m thick ... The cist, oriented E to W is largely infilled; internally it measures 0.8m by 0.6m, and is 0.2m deep. The coverstone is missing as is the stone at the E end. The others take the form of irregular boulders rather than slabs". Lethbridge diagram p.102 Cist(D), photo p.102.
