Archaeology Notes

NN95SE 14 9865 5120.

Four cists were discovered during building operations at Westhaugh of Tulliemet. The cover stone of cist I had been smashed and a food vessel extracted. The cist, oriented ENE-WSW, measured 1.02m x 0.48m x 0.50m. A few bones of an inhumed burial were recovered. Cist II, lying partly under the wall of the cattle court, was oriented NNE-SSW and measured 0.54m x 0.44m x 0.38m. It had no cover stone and contained cremated bones and fragments of an Irish bowl type food vessel. Cist III, which also lay under the wall of the cattle court, was oriented ENE-WSW and contained only a samll quantity of cremated bone. There was no cover stone in situ but by the side of the adjacent farm road was a large flat slab. Stones protruding from the ditch between the farm road and the NW cattle court may be a fourth cist.

In 1891 a food vessel of Yorkshire Vase type was taken from a cist at Haugh of Tullimet. It is now in Blair Castle Museum.
