Aerial view of Crow Wood ring ditch cropmark, Muir of Ord, Easter Ross, looking SW.

SC 2180958

Description Aerial view of Crow Wood ring ditch cropmark, Muir of Ord, Easter Ross, looking SW.

Date 8/2003

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

Catalogue Number SC 2180958

Category On-line Digital Images

Scope and Content A substantial near-circular cropmark appears on this image between two dark gullies that appear as distinct hollows on Bing aerial mapping. The feature itself shows on the current OS aerial photo. This is also described as Logieside or Duchary Henge but could equally be a homestead motte constructed perhaps in the 12th century AD. There was an external circular bank around this feature when first recorded but this appears now to have been ploughed away. Another ring ditch was recorded from this flight by JS Bone as MHG32490 but is not clear in this image. Title and Scope & Content contributed by North of Scotland Archaeological Society (2021).
