Archaeology Notes

NH41SE 5 centred on 493 147.

In the area centred at NH 493 147, there is a deserted township, consisting of 24 rectangular buildings and 5 enclosures, 2 corn-drying kilns, surviving to a height of 1.5m, and a modern roofed building. There is evidence of lazy-beds north of the township.

The name 'Duntirhal' appearing on Roy's map (W Roy 1745-63) at approximately NH 497 143, is the only name known locally, but whether it applies to this township or not, could not be ascertained.

Surveyed at 1/2500.

W Roy, 1745-63, sheet 25/4
