Type Ground Survey


NT 50760 78260 As part of ongoing research into East Lothian hillforts a topographic and erosion survey was undertaken in August 2010. The survey was carried out by volunteers and students following a programme of gorse removal. The initial results of the survey indicate that, while the site has suffered from rabbit burrowing and stock pressure in the past, it is currently stabilising and recovering. The topographic survey of the upper enclosed area has created an accurate plan of the interior, plotted the locations of WW2 installations removed

in the 1970s and located a possible new entrance to the N.
