Archaeology Notes

At NH 5569 3958 is a mutilated stone-walled hut measuring c 7.0m in diameter between the centres of a wall spread to an indefinite width. The entrance is not apparent.

In the vicinty of the hut are a number of stone clearance heaps, some exposed in peat diggings. No plots were discerned, the area being partly occupied by cultivation associated with depop.

Sheet 28 OS 557394 No. 67 Lady cairn Farm.

Stone walling of a rectangular yard 31 yards x 24 yards, which adjoins another yard 28 yards x 12 yards with a range of buildings on its south and east sides. This site is more likely to have been a handling yard for cattle than the site at Relugas. 40 yards distant from the fence at the other side of the stream and towards the south, there are very faint traces of a hut circle 7 yards in diameter. At the other side of the swampy area, beyond the other fence and towards the N.E., there is an extensive cairnfield.
