Archaeology Notes

NH33SE 25 c.3346 3122

A hut-circle and an area of small cairns, spread over an area measuring some 250m by 150m on a gentle S-facing slope, were recorded during the course of an afforestation survey by J Wordsworth (NMRS MS 961/11, no.3).

The hut-circle measures 10m in diameter. The small cairns average 4m in width and stand up to 1m in height on the downslope side.
