Archaeology Notes

NX08SE 35 08711 82074

Oblique aerial photographs (RCAHMSAP 1995) have revealed the cropmarks of a round house, a possible souterrain and two pits, approximately 200m SSE of Ballantrae Bridge (NX08SE 25). The roundhouse which is cut by the edge of the field, measures approximately 15m in diameter. Immediately to the SSW there are two pits and a possible souterrain, which measures approximately 10m in length. Other cropmarks are visible in the surrounding area (see NX08SE 32, NX08SE 33, NX08SE 34, NX08SE 36 ).

Information from RCAHMS (KJ) 16 March 1999.
