Archaeology Notes

NH43SE 65 46400 31903

This hut-circle is situated towards the SW end of a ridge in birch woodland about 300m NE of Dalreach. It measures 9.5m in diameter within a stony bank 0.3m high and 2.1m thick. Immediately to the NE, between the hut-circle and a small cairn, there are the possible remains of a subrectangular hut, and there are further small cairns on the ridge to the NE. The full extent of the cairns was not defined within the wood.
