ND23NE 11 2995 3923

(ND 2995 3923) Broch (NR)

OS 1:10,000 map, (1977)

A small artificial knoll - the remains of a Pictish dwelling.

Name Book 1871.

The remains of a broch, now visible as a low, turf-covered sub-circular mound with a slightly concave centre, 1.0m high and some 20.0m in diameter, situated on near-level ground on the NE bank of a burn. Soil erosion has revealed a heavy stone content, but no definite traces of wall faces can be seen, save possibly on the NW side, where a single course of stones protrudes through the turf, forming a horseshoe shape, 2.0m across, indicating a mural cell.

Surveyed at 1:2500.

Visited by OS (NKB), 10 May 1967.
