Archaeology Notes

NY28NW 10 2221 8837.

NY 223 885. A stone circle lies on the E bank of Booth's Burn about 500m S of Kirkslight Rig. It is approximately 16m in diameter and consists of large stones now no longer upright. In the SE quadrant there are the remains of a possible cist within the circle while in the NW quadrant there is another possible cist where large stones lie on the perimeter of the circle.

I W Stuart 1973

NY 2221 8837 This feature, in a forest clearing on marshy ground 700m south of Kirkslight Rig, is almost certainly not a stone circle. It comprises an apparently natural assemblage of boulders covering an area of approximately 10.0m by 12.0m. There is one very large boulder 1.2m high and 1.5m by 1.2m and, to the east, a fortuitous curvilinear group which form a vague perimeter on this side. Elsewhere there is a random spread of smaller earthfast boulders but there are no slabs.

Two groups of small boulders in the SE and NW may be the two cists referred to.

Visited by OS (MJF) 10 October 1978.
