"Situated on the southern peak of Cnoc Mor at the east end of Eilean Chalium Cille the remains of this cairn measure 1 metre in diameter and stand to a maximum height of 0.7 metres. The footings of this cairn are heavily grown over with turf suggesting that its origins are not recent. Its location and form suggests that it may be the remains of a navigation cairn."
