GRIMS GRAVE

DESCRIPTION + /

Grim's Graves. A ring cairn set into the slope, c 4.5m in diameter, with a cist at its centre. The cairn consists of a stony, turf-covered mound contained by a ring of upright slabs, most leaning outwards, c 1m in height; the mound rises to c 0.4m at top of cist. The cist, box dimensions c 0.8m x 0.95m internally, is formed from edge-set slabs. One side slab is c 1.7m long, 0.9m wide and 0.2m thick.
The monument survives in a very good condition though the cover-stone is missing - this is possibly the slab that now lies on the down-slope side.
