There are substantial remains of a cairn which is now surrounded by trees. Just outside the cairn (NE) is a single standing stone. The front of the tomb is in SW. About 100m S is another standing stone. The tomb is about 8m long by 5m wide at the front. The burial chamber is about 1.5m wide and less than 1m high. It is about 3m long. This is part of the Tullyhaw Heritage Trail.
