Archaeology Notes

NT04NW 045 493.

NT 047 493 - NT 042 493. About forty-five small cairns lie to the N of the Salla Burn, at an elevation of between 275m and 305m OD and stretch eastwards for a distance of 450m to the immediate vicinity of a stone sheepfold.

(For discussion on the period and purpose of small cairns of this type, see NT05SE 3).

RCAHMS 1978, visited 1975

Centred NT 045 493. A group of small probable stone clearance cairns occupy about 10.0 hectares of a south- facing hillside. There is nothing that can be identified as a burial cairn and there are no associated lynchets or field banks.

Visited by OS (BS) 19 February 1979.
