Archaeology Notes

NH68NE 21 6925 8765

At NH 6925 8765 on the brink of a W-facing slope is a circular stone-walled hut measuring about 9.0m in diameter between the centres of a wall spread to an indeterminate width by modern cultivation. The entrance is not evident.

On the slopes to the W of the hut are a few stone clearance heaps, probably from contemporary cultivation plots.

Surveyed at 1/2500.

Visited by OS (I S S) 4 October 1973.

There are at least twelve cairns and an enclosure in rough pasture 550m ENE of Ardvannie. The enclosure measures 8m in diameter within an earth-and-stone bank; a central mound measures 2m in diameter and 0.2m in height.

RCAHMS 1979, visited October 1978.
