Archaeology Notes

NO16SE 1 197 653

(NO 1552 6480) This is a circular enclosure with a stone-marked circumference.

Information from M E C Stewart 1962

Extensive perambulation of the hill slope between Balloch and the Dalnagar hut circles failed to locate the enclosure mentioned by Stewart, although in the area NO 197 653 there is a fortuitous tumble of stones which appears to form a large circular enclosure c. 23.0 m. in diameter.

There is no doubt, however, that this is natural. The shepherd of this area cannot recall any circular enclosures.

Visited by OS (RD) 30 April 1968.
