Berryholme Round Cairn is situated just off the public right of way leading from Briggs House Farm, to Brigsteer some two miles away.

Initially it looks little more than a grassy mound in the corner of a field, however closer inspection reveals some of the exposed part of the stone core of the cairn. Not a very well preserved site, as there's an old shelter of some sort built into the side of the mound itself....but seeing as it's on a less well known footpath, the damage done will probably not be increased by too many tourists or walkers.
