Archaeology Notes

NH54SW 29 534 432

NH 44/54 OS 534432 Ballindoun Farm. No. 60

Among bushes there is an ancient high rampart with a deep ditch on the up and N.E. side 25 yards long. This linear earthwork may be connected with Dun Mor hill fort above. If so, it would appear that construction had been discontinued shortly after commencement, as if overtaken by some disaster. There is a linear earthwork in the wood next to Cabrich at approx. OS 535433.
