Archaeology Notes (31 January 1997)

Aerial photographs (RCAHMSAP 1994 and RAF 541 A435, frame no.3073) show a long building, or possibly two shorter buildings on the same alignment, in a patch of rough grassland to the SE of the Big Burn. The flatter ground around the building bears faint traces of rig.
