Archaeology Notes

NH27SW 3 NH 23310 74874

NH 23310 74874 A walkover survey was conducted to investigate several small cairns downstream on the Allt a Mhadaidh from Cairns 1 and 2 (NH27SW 15 and NH27SW 2).

NH 23310 74874 Several large stones, possibly structured, with an interior void, set on a slope c 50m above Allt a Mhadaidh. Two large stones are set into the hillside near this structure, one 100m SW, one a further 20m SSW. These line up roughly with the standing stones on the Allt a Mhadaidh bank (NH27SW 2).

NH 23395 74940 Faint traces of a possible hut circle.

NH 23204 74842 A single upright standing stone, 1.4m high, running into the hillslope for 1.5m. Its exposed length is 2.6m.

NH 23117 74812 Cairn, close to the river. The massive stone on top is angular, 1.5 x 1m, and 0.5m thick.

Further investigation is planned for 2006, to establish whether this line of possible cairns has archaeological significance.
