The cairn appears to consist of two parts, a ring cairn with an overall diameter of 6m, and a stone cairn 2m in diameter and 0.75m high covering the northwest part of the ring cairn. The ring cairn has a bank c.1m wide and 0.2m high. A possible cist structure was visible in the southwest part of the stone cairn. When the site was visited in October 2006, no vegetation was growing on the stone cairn but the ring cairn was covered with moss and grass. J.J. Hall, Trysor, 24 October 2006
