OS 6" map, Ross-shire, 2nd ed., (1907)

Nothing further is known of this battle, except that it is the explanation of all the cairns which lie on the surrounding moors.

Name Book 1871.

Not a battle site, but a poorly preserved field system centred at NH 737 630 in cleared woodland on a gentle N-facing slope. It comprises denuded stone clearance heaps, field walls and lynchets, which form cultivation plots of a type usually found in association with hut circles. Where best preserved in the NE, two fields measure 20.0m x 15.0m and 30.0m x 20.0m.

Visited by OS (N K B) 23 November 1970.
