Archaeology Notes

NH53NW 30 542 387

Sheet 27 OS 542387 No. 94 N.E. of Araidh.

In the fir wood there is a length of low, moss-covered crude stone walling which has gaps. It runs from south to north and joins a low broad rampart at an angle. At this point the rampart, which may have been an ancient boundary, has a gap of 16 yards and then continues. At the north end of the gap, similar stone walling, 18 yards long, joins the rampart at the same angle and is offset from the other stone walling by 9 yards. This linear feature appears to have been for hunting purposes or stock control.
