150 metres north-east of the of the main cairn at Poulawack are the remains of another small burial cairn. Rising to a little over a metre, it's a robbed out ruin. Estimated diameter is about 10 metres. At the centre of the mound there are the remains of a burial chamber/cist, with some of the orthostats still in place on the east side. It's hard to guess the dimensions of this due to the infill. On a drizzly, January day we wondered who it was that pulled this mound apart and what they were looking for. ryaner Posted by ryaner
