Archaeology Notes

ND24SE 19 2603 4425

To the NE of the Camster long cairn (ND24SE 1) is a circular depression with a partly-defined peat-covered bank around its rim measuring 6.5m between its centres. There are traces of what may be an entrance in the SSE. This may be a hut circle, but it is too ill-defined to classify positively.

Visited by OS 12 April 1972.
