Full Description

NC50NE 30 5978 0697.
Tumuli (NR). OS 6"map, Sutherlandshire, 2nd ed., (1908)

These mounds have virtually disappeared due to cultivation and construction of a new road, but it would appear that they were the usual field clearance heaps. RCAHMS note a hut circle lying 100 yards to the south, but this could not be located.

The area containing the "tumuli" shown on OS 6" map, 2nd ed., (1908) is now under crop, and there is no trace of mounds or a hut circle. On the E side of the public road in pasture at NC 599 069 are several stone clearance heaps of a minor field system. These show no pattern of cultivation plots. Presumably the "tumuli" were also a result of field clearance.
