NJ 4974 2634 A resistivity survey was undertaken from 6-11 November 2006 as part of the Rhynie Environs Archaeological Project (REAP). The survey covered the scheduled area of the Craw Stane and a series of surrounding enclosures (Barflat). The survey clarified the nature of the multiple enclosures around the Craw Stane and identified a further possible ditch with entrance on the southern edge of the complex. A series of features were also visible within these enclosures.

To the S of the Craw Stane enclosures, a strong circular feature c10m in diameter, with an internal feature and a possible entrance to the SE was identified. Linear features were also present (possibly field drains or boundaries), as well as other less well defined features.

Archive to be deposited with RCAHMS and reports with Aberdeenshire SMR.
