Archaeology Notes

NG09NW 20 centred on 0447 9743

At least two bank-and-ditch enclosures, probably used for agriculture, are located on the N coast of the Aird Niosaboist. The northernmost is sub-oval in shape while that to the S is more rectangular with a more pronounced ditch and both measure at least 30m across.
