RCAHMS NMRS record no. HY40NE 23 at HY48240699 is a mound mutilated by a WWII flagstaff, now gone, and the cutting of peat. The cairn slopes down from south to north, in 1965 coming down to a metre high from a maximum of two-and-a-half, and measures 20m N/S by 12m E/W (which is why I have not entered this as a long barrow). wideford Posted by wideford
