Archaeology Notes

NH67SE 26 6627 7431 and 6628 7439.

At NH 6627 7429 and NH 6628 7437 on an afforested S-facing slope are two circular stone-walled huts (A and B respectively).

"A" is mutilated and measures about 9.0m in diameter between the centres of a wall spread to c.2.0m all round. The indistinct entrance is in the SE.

"B", bisected by a later hill dyke, is about 12.5m in diameter between the centres of a wall spread to c.3.0m. The SE arc is mutilated and no entrance is apparent.

No contemporary cultivation plots can be seen.

Surveyed at 1:2500.

Visited by OS (N K B) 29 October 1970.

These two hut circles are now obscured by trees.

RCAHMS 1979.
