NG82NW 8 8314 2745.

(NG 8314 2745) Grave Yard (NAT)

OS 6"map, Ross-shire, 2nd ed., (1905)

A hill-fort and its outworks, filled up with soil in antiquity, and used as a burial ground. The hill on which it lies is called "Angel's Hill".

T Wallace 1910.

A near-circular graveyard, about 20.0m in diameter, crowning a prominent knoll. It is still in occasional use, and is surrounded by an iron railing bedded in a dry stone foundation. This foundation is placed on the brink of a stony scarp 1.5m high, most evident in the N, which is undoubtedly the remains of an ancient wall. About 2.0m outside this, at a lower level, in the W is another grassy scarp, undoubtedly artificial, which ties into an outcrop on the SW and merges with the upper scarp in the N. There is little doubt that these fragmentary remains are those of a dun with an outwork, with the original internal area corresponding roughly to the area of the graveyard.

Surveyed at 1:2500 scale.

Visited by OS (A A) 12 June 1964.
