Archaeology Notes

NH64SW 22 624 436

(Cited location is on boundary of Kirkhill and Inverness and Bona parishes).

NH 64/74 OS 624436 No. 17 Above Lady stone Farm.

A rampart 1 foot high and outer ditch 1 foot deep. From an approx. 120º corner this runs 12 yards northwards and 33 yards westwards, both ends being cut by a later catch ditch between the scrub wood-land and the arable field beyond. This earthwork does not appear to be connected with drainage and may have been part of an enclosure now ploughed out in the field. 130 yards further west from the corner there is the corner of another more prominent rampart or turf wall with its ditch, the corner this time being nearer a right angle. Here the lengths are 43 yards northwards and 30 yards westwards, where it is cut by a third and similar earthwork with length north¬wards 43 yards and westwards 34 yards, where it meets yet another with length northwards 29 yards and westwards 15 yards. This earth work may be the remains of a stance and replacement stances adjacent to the drove road.
