Viewed from road 6.6.12

The most southern of this barrow group is visible from the road.
It appears to be approximately 1 metre high x 8 metres across.

Canmore states:
‘A group of 13 barrows situated at the SW end of a prominent ridge. The largest and most southern is undoubtedly the barrow which contained the single short-cist cremation. The urn cannot be located’
