2500bc-14/1300bc South east of cairn 126 was a large earth-fast boulder once part of a small cairn. Part of the stone kerb and the turf centre survived, and a pit with some potsherds was recorded at the centre. There was a scatter of charcoal at the centre of the mound. No burnt human skeletal material was found although the soil permitted survival.
