Archaeology Notes

NC96SE 104 9584 6344

A hut-circle, five small cairns and stretches of field-wall, situated on a gentle NW-facing slope between the Sandside Burn and unnamed tributaries to the W, were noted during a pre-afforestation survey of the Sandside estate. The hut-circle measures 9m from N to S by 12m internally. There is a line of five small cairns extending about 50m to the E whilst to the SW there are two field-walls.
