Cairn in middle of length of stone row. "The northern part of the row is aligned precisely in the centre of the cairn circle, both of which would therefore seem part of the original design. The cairn is not visible from the south end of the southern extension of the row. This extension consists of four general alignments more of which focus on the cairn circle, and the northern end of the extension is tangential to the west side of the circle. These factors, and the larger size of the stones in the northern extension of the row, suggest two phases of construction." Butler Cairn 1 (Vol 3 54.18). Turner Type Diii 'Ring Setting with Central reduced to subsoil level or paved'.
