Description

An archaeological excavation was carried out by AOC Archaeology Group in 2018 at the site of a potential hut circle at Tordarroch, Farr, during construction of a new overhead line transmission route. Although the site presented as a potential hut circle, the excavation concluded that it was in fact a modified, natural hollow that had been used for small-scale purposes. The outer bank proved to be too ephemeral and crude to have formed a hut circle wall, although augmented to provide an element of shelter for the hollow. <1>
