Archaeology Notes

NH74SE 29 7518 4388

There is a circular mound with a regular profile c. 25m in diameter and a maximum of c. 0.7m high in an arable field, some 38m to the SW of the chapel and graveyard at Ballaggan, between Clava cairns NH74SE 2 and NH74SE 6. On the summit of the mound some stones are visible in the grass. The regularity of the mound suggests that it is man made.

Information from G J Barclay, SDD (HBM), 16 March 1989.

Air photographs, taken by Jill Harden in 1989, are in Inverness Museum (8907.03-05 INVMG).
