Archaeology Notes

ND34SW 68 31794 40067.

A possible structure comprising irregular turf-covered ridges and depressions, 14.6 by 4m, which could be natural.

C E Batey 1981

This probably natural grass-grown mound is situated in a cultivated field 140m S of Braehead farmsteading and is one of at least three similar features in the same field. It measures about 5m in diameter by 0.3m in height and appears to form the crest of a localised high point that rises gradually from the S and falls sharply to the N.
