Archaeology Notes

NH54SE 32 591 425

NH 44/54 OS 591425 No. 28 S.W. of Blar nam Feinne.

30 yards down from the iron strainer where the fence takes a slight turn, and 25 yards to the east there are prominent linear outcrops of rock forming breastworks, likely to be used as butts for hunting purposes. Nearby to the S.E. are two small cairns.

Coghill et al 1989

NH 598 427 (centre) A rapid archaeological survey was undertaken on the site of a proposed Woodland Grant Scheme. The survey was partially limited due to existing planting and harvesting. No sites other than those previously recorded were noted.

Full report lodged with Highland SMR and the NMRS.
