Archaeology Notes

NT14NE 23 163 457.

A small triangular group of eight horizontal cultivation terraces can be seen opposite BM 715.7 on the Romanno-Drochil road. They evidently represent the survivors of a more extensive system, the N side of which has been obliterated by rig-cultivation, and the S side by a group of about ten curving terraces which sweep down and across the western face of Whiteside Hill, immediately beyond the enclosed fields at Flemington.

RCAHMS 1967, visited 1962

These terraces are barely visible.

Visited by OS (SFS) 15 October 1974
