Cropmarks on the N side of the public road (A75) 360m SE of Drumflower reveal what may be the W end of an enclosure defined by close-set pits. The enclosure, which is probably roughly rectangular, measures at least 28m from WNW to ESE by 24m transversely. Towards the E there is a rectangular setting of pits measuring about 16m by 5m.
