Archaeology Notes

NH56SE 15 5576 6105.

At NH 5576 6105 on the summit of Cnoc na Laitch in a felled plantation, are the scant remains of what may have been a cairn. All that survives is a vague circular bank measuring 26.5m overall with one earthfast boulder (upright and 0.7m high) embedded in the stony SE arc. The interior is uneven and four or five small boulders protrude through the turf.

It is possible that it is the remains of a tree ring.

Surveyed at 1/2500.

Visited by OS (A A) 12 September 1973.

The enclosure is generally as described above. Roughly central within the enclosure is a turf-covered stony mound about 3.1m in diameter and 0.4m high. The presence of the mound illustrates the possibility that the feature is an enclosed cremation cemetery. Surveyed at 1:2500.

Visited by OS (J B) 29 November 1976.

No change.

Visited by RCAHMS (JRS) 3 March 1989.
