Archaeology Notes

NX66SE 10 663 615.

(Area: NX 663 615) A group of stones, part of a very small stone circle 12 feet in diameter, lies 78 yards NE of a cairn (NX66SE 3).

F R Coles 1895.

Johnstone records 'Two circles...large stones, close laid. The outer circle about 98ft round, the inner 27ft 'on a little knoll near a cairn (NX66SE 3) (? the same site as Coles's).

M R Dobie 1959.

No trace of a stone circle was found in the area indicated by Coles, heather and dense bracken making investigation difficult. A small, stony hollow (3.0m x 2.0m) was noted at NX 6625 6153, possibly the remains of a sheiling bothy. Whether the feature has any connection with Coles' circle it is impossible to say.
