Activities

Field Visit (26 November 2009)

This site is located on the lower slopes of a small hill c.50m from the River Ledmore, sloping from NW-SE. The site consists of rough stone foundations of a small rectangular building c.10m long and 5m wide with a maximum surviving height of wall of 0.5m. It is oriented roughly E-W on its long axis. The construction is mostly of rough stones which do not appear to have been worked and are now almost covered by turf, suggesting turf may have been a significant structural component. An entrance approximately 1m wide was observed in the south wall but no internal walls or features were noted. The sites lies around 40m east of the previously quoted NGR.
