Archaeology Notes

NN79NW 14 7490 9922

At least two intercutting blocks of rig have been recorded on oblique aerial photographs (RCAHMSAP 1986) situated on a broad terrace to the S of the River Spey. The rig is characterised by fine furrows, which are sinuous on plan and pinch together to the W. Circular marks in the grass along the terrace edge are likely to be natural in origin, perhaps mushroom rings (i.e. 'fairy rings').
