"Cairn and cist on the East side of Brent Fore Hill. The cairn is 6.0m in diameter, merging into the slope of the hill and being about 0.5m high on the downslope side, which has a retaining kerb. There is a central cist of which two parallel slabs remain set on edge at the NW and SE sides. An upright stone 0.9m high is offset from the cist on the NW side."
