Description :
A circular mound under 16 mature pine trees, which inclines to the E, situated in dense forestry. It has a well-defined perimeter with steeply sloping sides to the N-S&W and a more gradual slope to the E. To the S of the mound is a large stone. The perimeter of the mound is heavily forested and disturbed with no evidence for a ditch or kerbstones. There is a scattering of boulders to the mound's SW perimeter these are most likely from agricultural ground clearance prior to the plantation of the forest.
