Archaeology Notes

NN71NE 12 798 182 to 801 178.

Broad shelf, with intermittent low agger from NN 799 179.

T M Allan 1985b.

NN 798 182 to NN 796 185 At the source of a minor headwater of Machany Water the agger of this presumed Roman road from Strageath Roman fort to Dalginross Roman fort, Comrie appears to bend N to cross the extreme W corner of a dense plantation (Garadh Dubh). It ends, however, after only 15 paces, its line overbuilt by a ruined sheep-fold. Its direction suggests that it proceeded NNW, skirting more or less closely the W side of three marshes and the S end of a fourth, and then bent NW over the shoulder of a hill. Dense bracken cover at time of visit.

T M Allan 1994b.
