Multiple cairns (possibly). Coflein descriptions (2002):

Bryn Mawr South (SN68970818)

[This is the marked on the OS 1:25000 as "cairn"]

Two contiguous cairns. That to the SW is 4.6m diameter, that to the NE 7.6m.
Both cairns have been robbed and are nowhere more than 0.3m high. the NE cairn shows traces of kerbing.

Bryn Mawr (SN69180820)

Six or seven stoney mounds that have variously been interpreted as peat stools, clearence cairns or collections of road metal. The presence of a modern sheep-shelter upon one of the 'heaps' does allow them to be dated as 'pre-recent'. Two of the heaps have been likened to ritual cairns.
