Field Visit (7 October 1997)

NH53SW 59 51730 31659

A hut-circle and a scatter of small cairns are situated on a heather-grown ridge to the N of Upper Drumbuie. Oval on plan, the hut-circle (URQ97 86) measures 9.5m from NNW to SSE by 7.5m transversely within a wall 0.8m in thickness and 0.3m in height. The entrance is on the SSW, and the SE arc has been slighted by a track. Around the hut-circle there are at least ten small cairns, the largest of which measures about 4m in diameter and 0.3m in height. About 150m to SW there are a further three small cairns (NH 5163 3152) and a trapezoidal enclosure (NH 5164 3153).
