Archaeology Notes

NT01NE 4 0844 1963 to 0875 1971

NT 085 197 & NT 087 197: Two pairs of hut platforms, 100 yds apart, lie on the E flank of Little Dod. The S pair measure 35' and 60' in width respectively, and the N pair are both 40'.

On the other side of Chapel Burn, on the N face of The Bank are six hut platforms in line. Two are 35' wide, one 40', one 45' and two 50'.

RCAHMS 1967, visited 1962.

NT 0844 1963. The S pair of house platforms measure 10.0m and 18.0m in diameter. Each is slightly built up on the lower side but neither has a distinct entrance.

To the N are other slight depressions but none is characteristic of a house platform.

NT 0875 1971. On the E side of Chapel Burn just above the Fruid Reservoir are two house platforms 12.0m and 15.0m in diameter. There are other surface irregu- larities in the vicinity but none is certainly a house site. It seems likely that the remaining four houses mentioned by RCAHMS lie below the level of the new reservoir.

Surveyed at 1/10560.

Visited by OS (J P), 12 November 1974.
