Archaeology Notes

NO63NW 3 606 391.

NO 606 391. Ring-ditches, Balcathie: visible on RCAHMS aerial photographs taken in 1979.

Aerial photography has recorded the cropmarks of several ring-ditches and pit features scattered across a field 250m W of Cotton of Balcathie. Probable settlement remains include at least three faint crescentic marks (probably houses) with further arcs of ditch and crescentic shapes representing some six further ring-ditches. Possible short double pit-alignments are visible at c.NO 6070 3921 and c.NO 6051 3914, each no more than 12m long. In the same field, cropmarks of further pit-defined features, souterrains and an enclosure (NO63NW 11) have been recorded.
