Archaeology Notes

NH64SW 28 602 436

NH 64/74 OS 602436 No. 23 Kirkton Muir.

From the burn traces of a ditch can be seen running N.N.E. and on through forestry ploughing 40 yards west from the corner of a forestry fence. It continues on into rough grazing, being cut through by a later stone/turf dyke 25 yards north of the corner. After a short distance it swings round gradually to a N.N.W. direction and fades out among bushes in a swampy area. The length of this dry ditch in the rough grazing is 250 yards, and in the best section it is 2 feet deep x 3 feet wide with the up-cast to each side. It was probably connected with the clearance cairns in the forestry ploughing to the west.
