Field Visit (28 August 1943)

This monument is marked on the 6-inch OS map at the S corner of Bogbuie Wood. At this point there are the remains of what may have been a cairn, but it has been so much disturbed by the building across it of a turf dyke and the cutting of a drainage ditch and a famr-road that nothing can be said concerning its original features. Its ‘diameter’ may have been from 25ft to 40ft. This site need not be revisited.

Visited by RCAHMS (AG) 28 August 1943.
