Archaeology Notes

ND02SE 21 0977 2249

At ND 0977 2249, on a shelf on a SW-facing hillslope, are the remains of a massive hut circle of Kilphedir II type (see NC91NE 25), now overgrown with heather and bracken. It has been robbed, some 6.0m having been totally removed from the SW arc, but it appears to have been circular, about 10.0m in diameter within a wall, 0.8m maximum height, spread to 3.0m. Some three or four boulders of the inner wall face are exposed. The entrance has been destroyed.

Occupying 1 1/2 hectares of the slope NE of the hut circle are about eighteen low, turf-covered clearance heaps which are probably contemporary with the hut. This area contains a number of recent surface quarries which superficially resemble hut circles set into the slope.

Surveyed at 1:10,000.

Visited by OS (N K B), 16 November 1982.
