Archaeology Notes

NN60NW 25 6491 0667.

NN 649 067. Crop-marks consisting of a number of pits, which may form the S and W sides of a rectilinear enclosure, are visible on air photographs.

RCAHMS 1979.

(Location cited as NN 6491 0667). A roughly L-shaped arrangement of at least twenty pits has been revealed by cropmarks on the gravel terrace between the Keltie Water and the A84 public road. It may form the SW angle of a rectilinear enclosure. The W arm of the L-shape is made up of two distinct alignments, which meet at a facet 8m N of the corner, and one slightly larger pit can be seen within the angle.

As the enclosure is incomplete, its classification remains in doubt, and it is not plotted as a large ritual enclosure on a distribution map of Neolithic monuments covering southern Scotland.
