Archaeology Notes

NH79NE 16 7738 9948.

At NH 7738 9948 on a W-facing slope is a mutilated stone-walled hut within an associated field system. The hut of which RCAHMS (1911) state that only the W side remains, is visible as a platform c. 8.0m in diameter, built up on the slope and within a wall of indeterminate thickness, which is destroyed in the N arc. A gap, 3.0m wide in the S may indicate the position of the entrance. A lynchet extends NE and SE from the hut but generally the field system is marked only by scattered stone clearance heaps (noted as a large group of mounds by the RCAHMS) and merges into recent cultivation in the W. There are no measurable cultivation plots.
