Right next to a minor road leading to a lighthouse - off the B9078
Next to a loch – just before a cattle grid.

A low grass covered mound approximately 1 metre high x 15 metres across.
Looks to have been dug into?

The coastal views from the lighthouse have to be seen to be believed!

Canmore states:
‘A concentric turf covered mound of burnt stones and black earth’.
