A possible cairn lies in a very steep-sided valley. Canmore:
A cairn or a possible building (NOSAS site survey number 995) appears as a stone spread bounded by a straight edge along one side. A dyke previously recorded at this approximate location was not found.
Another nearby feature previously thought to be a burial cairn is now thought to be natural:
(NH 25689 53568) A natural feature previously thought to be a burial cairn forms a prominent landmark on the otherwise flat valley floor. There are two small buildings cut into its S side which are likely to be associated with the adjacent township
A third possible cairn lies to the WNW at NH 222 553.
