|Description ||The monument is a horned chambered cairn 30m long. A deep forecourt of six stones leads to two large portal stones beyond which is a chamber 12m long, divided into five compartments by transverse slabs. Beyond the chamber in the heart of the cairn lay a mound of burnt material, later incorporated in the cairn. The cairn had a kerb of upright slabs describing a trapezoidal shape. Further stones outside this arrangement describe a more rectangular circumference, but are not accepted as being part of the original monument.|
