Description and History – Little remains of this tomb which has a circumference of 41m and a diameter of 14m. Whatever alignment is there is now blocked by the later cairn L indicating that by the time cairn L was build cairn J had already lost significance. There were three decorated stone recorded in the 19th century, although I could find no trace of these.

Difficulty – Directly behind cairn L, easy to find.
