HY 44 09. RCAHMS No. HY40NW 5.
Not being found in the Crantit region RCAHMS have referenced this to a structure in Upper Scapa. Not easy to get to, lying in a valley field. If it isn't a souterrain it could represent the remains of a chambered cairn. It has been suggested to me that it was made for cattle but I reckon the line of very short stone orthostats along the length would risk their laming.
The reason Ordnance Survey found no memory of the site with the farmer in 1966 is that the Bichan's only bought Crantit in 1949 .
