Across the road from Little Lodge long cairn, over a gate, and five minutes of an uphill saunter brings us to this pretty good round barrow. Only a fence or two separate us now, after deftly jumping them we can see that the barrow is really quite a long one, not very round at all.
Slumped next to the barrow is a load of loose stony rubble, and more further down on the side of the barrow.
Excepting from north to east there are very good long views. Little lodge can be seen in the valley below. Two farmery type people eyeballed us before we went up but nothing came from it. Sunny silence abounded.
