From the north, as it appears from the car park.


This cairn is in a private field, but it's pretty well signposted, 50 metres from the road.
The diameter of the cairn is about 28 metres and the passage has a length of 5 metres, a width of 1.30 metres and an average height of 1.70 metres, facing north-northwest (330°). At the end of the gallery is a large stone that closes the access to the burial chamber.
The roof collapsed inside the gallery and the flank stones are propped up with timber beams. Other stones lie on the ground on the other side of the mound and might have been part of the roof.
