Archaeology Notes

NH54SW 31 c. 503 437

On boundary between parishes of Kilmorack and Kiltarlity and Convinth.

NH 44/54 OS 503437? No. 72 S.E. of Baiblair Wood.

There are soil and small stone footings of a rectangular enclosure 23 yards x 11 yards. Entrance may have been at the N.E. end as footings can scarcely be traced here. 95 yards to the north there is a rampart 13 yards long crossing a hollow. To the N.E. there are extremely faint traces of a turf rectangular enclosure 30 x 34

x 14 yards. The edge of a very steep bank forms one side at an angle with perhaps a gateway at the end of the 14 yard length.
