Full Description

NC92NW 8 9371 2553.

This U-shaped burnt mound, which is situated on the steep valley side of the Allt Alla-choire some 3.5m above the present level of the burn, measures 8.5m from ESE to WNW by 6.3m transversely and 0.5m in height. It merges with the slope to the N and opens out to the SSW. Around the 'mouth' there is a line of stones, enclosing the area of the sump. A sheep track running along the SSW has exposed cracked, reddened stone and charcoal in a matrix of black soil.
