Round cairn.
Stalled chamber.
Notes:Located on the summit of Knucker Hill, the six recorded orthostats suggest a stalled chamber aligned north-south.

Divided into four chambers, the structure is likely to have been similar in proportion to the Point of Cott.

Two slabs south of the structure were suggested to relate to a second cairn.
