A fairly typical cairn and cist site with one interesting difference.

Inside the cist at the west end was a 0.6m long slab decorated with multiple lozenges. Now in the Royal Museum, Edinburgh.

Access from the canal locks opposite the entry to Cairnbaan rock art.

Just to add that the cairn is visible from the B841 as you cross the pretty canal. It is a large rough grass covered mound. No time for further investigation on this occasion i'm afraid.
