Archaeology Notes

NN71NE 11 788 196 to 797 185

Ruined agger makes zig-zag descent from broad platform (in sight of Dalginross) at NN 791 192. Thereafter signs suggestive of ascent from burn along broadening belt of dry ground.

T M Allan 1985.

From a field-gate by a cottage at the foot of Auchingarrich accommodation-road (NN 789 197) there runs SE across a narrow field a low, continuous agger, up to 12 paces wide, with, midway, a slight northward bend. In April its grass was shorter than that on either side of it, but it is only intermittently stony to the probe.

From here the likeliest course of a Roman road, at first avoiding a rushy area at NN 791 196, is along first th SSW, and then the W, side of Auchingarrich Burn, and thence S to Garadh Dubh (Allan 1994). This suggested course supersedes the more westerly one suggested in Allan 1985, 52, lines 1-4.

T M Allan 1995.
