Archaeology Notes

NH63NW 60 6031 3647

The cropmarks of a pit-circle have been revealed by oblique aerial photographs (RCAHMSAP 1995), 400m SSE of Aldourie Farm. It has an internal diameter of about 12-15m and consists of approximately 12 pits. Immediately NE of the pit-circle two further possible pits are situated. It is intersected on its SE side by linear cropmarks, which may be part of a small enclosure. There are other indeterminate cropmarks in the surrounding area and an enclosure with a pit-circle is situated about 15m to the NE (NH63NW 34).

Information from RCAHMS (KJ) 15 June 1999.

Activities

Aerial Photographic Interpretation (11 April 2014)

Following a review of the aerial photographic evidence, the circle of pits recorded as cropmarking on aerial photographs is now thought to represent the remains of a later prehistoric roundhouse. As such the pit circle classification previously applied has been removed.
