Field Visit (7 April 2014)

This animal trap is set into a gentle N facing slope at the edge of terrace, and about 40m south of the Dalmagarry burn. It comprises a pit that measures 2.5m in diameter at the surface, tapering to only 0.4m at the base, and is now about 0.8m deep. It is surrounded by a bank of up-cast 1m in thickness and 0.2m in height.

This feature is similar to others discovered in the parish (NH73SE 34, NH73SE 36; NH73SE 37; NH73SE 38), and is most likely to have been used to trap foxes.
