(NH 5232 5266) Earthwork (NR)

OS 1/10,000map, (1973)

Circular, hengiform earthwork (G J Wainwright 1969) consisiting of a ditch with an outer bank.

Visible on OS air photographs OS.67.46:58-9 (flown 23 April 1967); Visible on CUCAP air photographs AT 170 (J K St Joseph).

In a cultivated field, set slightly into the SE side of a small hillock at 60 ft OD, there is a circular earthwork much reduced by ploughing. It consists of a bank, now visible on the ground in the N and SE quadrants only, measuring about 42.0 m from crest to crest. Within this bank there is a ditch, about 10.0 m in width and 0.7 m in depth, enclosing a level circular platform 20.0 m in diameter. In the SE quadrant of the ditch there is a very slight swelling which may be the remains of a causeway, but there is no corresponding break in the bank. This earthwork, although larger, is very similar to the nearby proto-henges at Contin (NH45NW 1), Culbokie (NH55NE 4), and Conon Bridge (NH55NW 1).

Surveyed at 1:2500.

Visited by OS (A A) 24 November 1967.

Listed as a possible Class 1 henge. Air photographs (Visible on RCAHMS air photographs RC 1870-2 (flown 1978) show that the entrance lies on the SSW.

RCAHMS 1979, visited 1979.

The earthwork has been ploughed-out, and there is nothing visible on the ground. It is, however, just visible on recent OS air photographs.

Information from OS (R Wilby, Inverness) 4 May 1989.
