A group of about 100 small, round mounds, overgrown with peat, scattered over a distance of several hundred yards on a west-facing slope. There are no signs of hut circles nor is there any indication of settlement. RCAHMS 1911, visited 1909.

Uncertain field clearance heaps.
Visited by OS (E G C) 13 May 1961.

These mounds are natural formations of peat situated in an exposed position high on the west facing slopes of Coriefeuran Hill. They are not clearance heaps as they appear to contain no stone, and there is no pattern of cultivation or traces of any lynchets or hut circles.
Visited by OS (N K B) 1 April 1977.
