NS89SW 7 800 917.

(NS 800 917) Site of round building.

Information from O G S Crawford, undated.

Near to Stirling, at a mansion-house called Livilands, there has stood another of the round houses, which seems to have had three circular walls with probably 20 feet of space between each of them. The stones of these walls are all gone, but the mark where their foundations had been is sufficiently distinct. The area of the central chamber had apparently been about 50 feet diameter. It is situated on a part of that terrace or ancient sea-beach which is found around almost the whole valley of the Forth, and on which elevation many of those round houses are built. Its height is about 40 feet.

C Maclagan 1873

There are no visible remains of this antiquity, and the present owners of the property have no knowledge of it.
