100yards west of the quarry and the scattered rocks is a chambred cairn, aligned south-west north-east. It is quite large and lozenge shaped, made of rubbled banks with a large cap-stone collapsed inside and a standard cairn at the sourthern end. Nearby and closer to the cliff are further similar structures. I found this quite an amazing site.
