Description

The monument is a burial mound of the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age, some 3500 to 4500 years old, situated on the SW end of the ridge known as Castleward. The mound is circular and measures 6m in

diameter, surrounded by a shallow ditch about 2m across. The mound

is unusual in being slightly dished on top. It will cover at least

one burial. The area to be scheduled measures 30m in diameter, to include the mound and an area around in which traces of associated activities will survive, as marked in red on the attached map.
