Archaeology Notes

NH78NE 91 7742 8938

Two structures, side by side, could be two hut circles or possibly one hut circle and an associated enclosure. One hut is 13.5m in diameter, with the walls spread to 3m and an E entrance. The possible enclosure or hut consists of a sub-circular wall spread to 3m (but with the N arc missing), and it is 1.5m from the hut. It is 14m in diameter and has a SE entrance, from which two mounds extend 5m outwards. The interior has a 5m circular depression.
