Archaeology Notes

NH54SW 37 543 405

NH 44/54 OS 543405 No. 98 Wester Clunes.

From a recent large clearance cairn there are traces of a raised track running S.W. into a bracken infested young plantation. There are faint traces of a ditch, five yards apart, at each side of the track. There are also traces of what has been a substantial turf wall running N.W. to S.E. straight down the steep slope and it passes close to the cairn's N.E. side. All the linear features

have been levelled by ploughing, which has also caused a rectangular terraced area to be formed in the very steep slope above the cairn. Over the fence and in the young plantation, traces can be seen, where the bracken has died down, of field walling with footings of a rectangular building on the up side.
