Archaeology Notes

NT02SE 23 085 204

NT 085 204: Three unenclosed hut platforms at a distance of 200yds from two more, are situated on the E flank of Benner Dod. The three, which lie one above the other, measure 50' and 40' in width respectively; the two which are 40' apart, measure 45' and 50' respectively.

RCAHMS 1967, visited 1962

There is no trace of these hut platforms and it seems likely that they have disappeared under the Fruid reservoir.

Visited by OS (BS) 31 October 1974.
