Unless you are walking Harland Edge then there's not a lot to make you want to find this cairn. It's roughly 5x4m in diameter and just visible above the scrub and heather.
From its position just below Harland Edge proper I would say it's more than likely related to the settlement on Harewood Moor or perhaps one below the 'edge' itself rather than those on Beeley or Gibbet Moor.
Excellent views south over the remaining Eastern Moors to the White Peak in the south.
