Full Description

Douglas Scott telephoned to say that he believes he originally reported this site and that there was an associated cist. He believes the stones from the cist and the axehead itself remain at the farmhouse. <1>

A flanged axehead possibly from this location was catalogued and photographed as part of the North Kessock & District Local History Society and Archaeology for Communities in the Highlands (ARCH) collaborative 'Feats of Clay' Project, which was focused on Bronze Age metalworking around the Moray Firth. This noted that this axehead was found 60 years ago during ploughing , but the association with a cist could be erroreneous. It was assigned an Middle Bronze Age date. <2>
