Full description:

"The remains of this cairn measure 4 metres in diameter and are located on the south facing slopes above the south shore of Eilean Chalium Cille. Standing no more than 0.5 metres tall it is heavily grassed over, with a few rocks being visible only at its centre. Growth of bracken and grass made photography and further interpretation impossible during the current survey." (Burgess 2004, 72)
