A real bu***r to find! Sits in the valley between Louden and Roughtor, just a low assortment of rocks orientated north south. I would not have found it with out a line drawing of what to look for..and then I was not too sure at first.
30 m long by 12m wide at the north end this cairn was not discovered until 1976 and only recognised as a long cairn in 1984.
