The following previously unrecorded burial mounds were noted in the course of now completed PhD research into the later prehistory of Tiree and Coll. NM 1682 5603 Totronald There are two burial mounds close to the standing stones NM15NE 15. The larger of the two might be a barrow measuring c15m in diameter and about 1m in height. It is on the valley floor c250m NE from the standing stones. The smaller mound is a grassed-over cairn at the base of the terrace on which the standing stones are located, roughly halfway between the stones and the barrow.
