Apparently not associated with the very nearby very ruinous stone row, but is in line with it.
I only stopped for a quick look on my way home in the late of afternoon, but was glad I did, the stone row may be a bad one but the cist is 75% perfect, the stone circle of the cairn maybe 20% perfect, the view 90% perfect. It had been a long and expensive day but the percentages don't lie, there's always more to see on Dartmoor.

Sharpitor Cairn and Cist - 28.12.2002

60 metres from the North East end of the stone rows lies a lovely little cairn and cist. And it seems to be in perfect line with the stone rows.
