Archaeology Notes

NH53NW 31 533 395

Sheet 27 OS 533395 No. 100 Batten.

In a bracken and whin infested area of rough grazing, there can be seen with difficulty when the bracken is down, a scatter of at least 3 small cairns. 2 of the cairns are on a ridge and in line with a much larger cairn a little distance further north on the ridge. This cairn is about 4 feet high with a small pointed kerbstone in position at the east side. This cairn appears to have been robbed. To the S.E. and in a lower area there is turf walling with a right angled corner, also another turf linear feature which, after running straight for a short distance, curves round to the area of the small cairns
