Field Visit (July 1977)

Runes (two words) have been noted on the Queen Victoria cairn. They were on the lintel of a 'Cupboard' in the cairn. Thus, this stone may have been built into the dun.

Visited by J Close-Brooks (National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland [NMAS]) July 1977; Information from Lady Bromley, Pursey Furze, Buckland, Faringdon, Oxen.
