Archaeology Notes

NH92SW 2 92 20.

The district called Docharn (prob. Davoch of the cairns) contains some "hundreds" of cairns, the majority of them small. (Three large ones specifically mentioned, separately recorded).

A Mitchell and J Drummond 1875.

No trace of these cairns was found. The probable area is now covered by a dense plantation.

It is probable that Mitchell is referring to stone clearance heaps.
