[Further notes - Site of Cairn]
"In 1836, a stone Coffin, containing remains of
"Human bones, was discovered on the farm of
"Langlands, about 3/4 of a mile N. [North] of Kilbirnie.
"The tumulus over it was by much the most remarkable
"object of the kind in this quarter. It stood on the level
"part of a field, Skirted by the Garnock on the West. It was
"of a circular form, 100 feet in diameter, and 6 feet in height, Originally
"it had been much higher, but about the beginning of the century, a
"great quantity of stones were taken from the summit to form
"a road in the neighbourhood." New Stat, Acct, [New Statistical Account]

Tumuli, in Scotland when formed of stones, are invariably called Cairns
