Jeannette Ratcliffe in ‘Scilly’s Archaeological Heritage’ (Twelveheads Press, 1995) gives the following info. “At the west end of the hilltop, an irregular D-shaped kerbed cairn built against a natural rock has remains of a chamber running along the outcrop. Two metres north-east on a natural eminence of bare rock by the footpath is a simple cairn with a slight central disturbance”. pure joy Posted by pure joy
