Full Description

NHO9SE 7 Centered on 0735 9175

A turf- and stone-banked enclosure, which is situated N of the road into Badrallach on the E of an unnamed burn to the N of Druim Dhonn, was recorded during the course of a pre-afforestation survey undertaken by J Wordsworth. The enclosure measures 100m by 80m, its bank standing to 1.5m in places and 2m wide at the base. There are possible traces of rig or lazy bed cultivation and the faint remains of three buildings, roughly rectangular in shape at NH c.0738 9168. Two more drystone features lie to the SW, at NH 0726 9165, in a small hollow on the N bank of the Allt na Luib whilst a possible turf and stone dyke extends W, from NH c.0729 9162, towards another bank at NH 0696 9170 (NH09SE 5).
