Archaeology Notes

NH44SE 25 495 439

NH 44/54 OS 495439 No. 84 N.E. of Kiltarlity Cottages.

A substantial rampart 50 yards long running N.E. - S.W. between the road and the bottom of a steep bank. In its best section it is 5 to 6 yards wide at the base and over 3 feet high from the bottom of

the ditch at the S.E. side. This ditch is about 3 yards wide at the bottom. At the other and north side of the road there is the rampart only which runs at right angles to the N.W. and above the edge of a steep bank, where after 55 yards it meets the bottom of another steep bank. It appears there could be other minor earthworks to the S.E. of the area. Over the fence above the bank at the S.W. side, and in rough grazing at the edge of an arable field, there are the stone footings of a circular enclosure. This enclosure has a flatter side at the S.E. where there is a 6 feet wide entrance, and opposite there is another 6 feet wide gap. The diameter of this enclosure in both directions is 28 yards.
