Archaeology Notes

NN72SW 9 7068 2326.

(NN 706 232) Cultivation terraces on the W slope of St Fillan's Hill, below fortifications of Dundurn (NN72SW 3).

A Graham 1939

These terraces (at least 4) are centred on NN 7068 2326. Their working areas are narrow, that of the best preserved, the easternmost, being only 3.0m wide while its scarp is 2.2m high. There are faint indications of a bank on two of them and the possibility cannot be ruled out that these 'terraces' are, in fact, outworks of Dundurn Fort (NN72SW 3).

Surveyed at 1/2500.

Visited by OS (EGC) 9 December 1966

Not outworks, but cultivation terraces, as described.

Visited by OS (MJF) 3 September 1980
