See also NX97NE 1.

Aerial photography has revealed the cropmarks of three sides of a ditched rectilinear enclosure running over two fields, 215m NE of Dalawoodie farmsteading. It measures about 120m by a minimum of 75m internally. A series of indeterminate cropmarks and linear cropmarks are scattered across these fields, and a further adjacent field to the SE. Similar linear cropmarks have been recorded immediately to the N (NX97NE 171).
