Archaeology Notes

NX64NE 31 6750 4636.

The remains of a faintly outlined Druidical circle were noted shortly after entering the Lake Wood (The Lake: NX 681 472), just opposite the new lifeboat house.

Trans Dumfriesshire Galloway Natur Hist Antiq Soc 1898

The wooded areas in the vicinity of the lifeboat house were perambulated without revealing any traces of a stone circle.

Visited by OS (WDJ) 7 January 1971.
