"This large cairn (24m diameter, 1.7m height) composed of loose granite boulders. It is unusual among summit cairns in having a well defined outer bank about 1m wide and 0.5m high. This is partly turf covered but where eroded can be seen to be built of loose stone like the central cairn which touches it. It shows best on the north and east sides, while on the south west side it tends to merge into the body of the cairn."
