Field Visit (2 September 1997)

NH43SE 51 4819 3276

A subrectangular, turf-banked, enclosure is situated in a clearing in the dense birch woodland to the S of Loch Gorm. It measures about 70m from NW to SE by 50m transversely and is open on the NW, where the bank may have been levelled by rig cultivation. The rigs measure about 4m between their furrows, and are visible in several places across the interior. At least seven small cairns, the largest of which measures 4m in diameter and 0.4m in height, lie to the NW and SW of the enclosure.
