This large chambered cairn is found on Buzza Hill, a small hill south of Hugh Town on St. Mary's in the Isles of Scilly, UK. It was excavated in the 18th century by the Cornish antiquarian William Borlase, but nothing was found inside. The cairn has no entrance and only one capstone remains in place. The stone sealing the north-east of the grave may be a fallen capstone. It is typical of late Neolithic and early Bronze Age cairns on the Isles of Scilly.
