Archaeology Notes

NM77SE 1 7920 7197.

(NM 7920 7197) The name Annat Burn (NM 785 723) suggests the existence of an Annat in the vicinity and wherever there is an Annat there are traces of an ancient chapel or cemetery, or both; very often, too, the Annat adjoins a fine well or clear stream (Watson 1926).

The most likely site appears to be the mouth of the burn between the sheepfold (NM 7915 7200) and the loch where air photographs (Visible on RAF air photographs CPE/Scot/UK/197: 4275-6; flown 12 October 1946) show what may be an enclosure.

The air photographs also reveal traces of cultivation and enclosures which suggest there may have been a settlement in the area.

W J Watson 1926.
