Archaeology Notes

NR36SW 17 3136 6470.

At NR 3136 6470, adjacent to early modern cultivation is a hut circle, measuring 6.5m diameter within a turf and heather-covered wall spread to 2.0m wide and 0.7m maximum height. The entrance is in the south-east arc. Some 50.0 to 60.0m distant, from the hut are the remains of a probable contemporary orthostatic wall.

Surveyed at 1:10 000.

Visited by OS (J M) 24 August 1979.

In an area of heather-covered, peaty moorland to the SE of Borraichill Mor, there are two hut-circles (see also NR36SW 18), one of them apparently set to one side of a roughly rectangular enclosure measuring 150m by 70m and built of upright stones. This hut is about 6.5m in internal diameter within a wall now represented by a stony bank 2m thick and 0.7m high, with an entrance on the SE side. Several outer facing-stones are visible.

Visited May 1980
