Archaeology Notes

NG09NE 1 c. 06 99.

Thomas suggests, from the derivation of the place-name Luskentyre (Lios-cinn-tir = Headland fort ) that there was a defensive structure there; and that the excellence of the farm would support this view.

F W L Thomas 1890.

No trace and no local knowledge of a fort.

Visited by OS (N K B) 29 June 1969.
