Description Oblique aerial view of features at S end of The Ord, near Lairg, Sutherland, looking NW.

Date 1998

Collection Papers of James Sloan Bone, landscape historian, Inverness, Highland, Scotland

Catalogue Number SC 1896316

Category On-line Digital Images

Scope and Content The image includes part of The Ord, an extensive Scheduled Monument comprising chambered cairns, cairns, settlements and field systems, including numerous hut circles. A prominent circular feature (upper centre), of Bronze Age date, was initially identified as a henge or robbed bell cairn, now thought to be a homestead defended by a ditch. At upper right, in the patchy green area between the probable homestead and the buildings at top right, there are two hut circles, not readily visible in this image. Just below centre of image are two hut circles, with evidence of rig and furrow and probable field clearance cairns. At lower centre is a large enclosure with turf and stone enclosure bank partly truncated by the A839 road. The road passes the Little Loch Shin Dam and heads N beside Little Loch Shin to Ferrycroft. Title and Scope & Content contributed by North of Scotland Archaeological Society (2021).
