An array of stones that must have formed part of a more organised structure at one time.

From Royal Commission on Ancient and Historic Monuments of Scotland website

This has been a round cairn with a possibly Orkney-Cromarty type chamber. It is now robbed almost flat, with three slabs ranging from 1'3" to 2'9" in height, protruding in the centre; and two earthfast stones on the SW that may be the remains of a peristalith.

From Survey of Prehistoric Monuments on the Black Isle by Anthony Woodham

The scanty remains of a cairn now covering an approximately circular area of 60 ft. diameter contain a completely ruined central chamber. Three substantial slabs on edge are visible, but no deductions as to the original size or shape of the chamber can be made. Extensive robbing had occurred prior to 1882.
