Full Description

NG87NW 29 centred on 8150 7783

A field-system is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Ross-shire 1881, sheet xliv) and on the current edition of the OS 1:10560 map (1969).
Information from RCAHMS (AKK) 19 April 1996.

A walkover survey in April 2008 noted that this site lies within a working quarry which is subject to blasting. The site was therefore not visited, but it appears that the enclosures are either destroyed or in very poor condition. <1>

The enclosures forming the field system are perfectly visible (and apparently undamaged) on 2009 APs. GIS spatial data amended accordingly in 2018. <2>
