Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. South of Clunvakie.
Parallel to the Bruiach burn, there appears to be an elongated pond adjacent to, and on the other side of the forestry track. It is 70 yards long and 28 yards down from the south end and is crossed at right angles by a flat topped causeway 20 yards long and 4 yards wide. At the other and bottom end two parallel low stone walls or footings 5 yards apart run towards the causeway and at right angles to it. The one nearest the burn is 27 yards long and the other 31 yards. The pond is 32 yards wide at the bottom end from where there appears to have been an open drain or ditch leading to the burn. At an angle above the causeway, there appears to have been an open ditch crossing the later track at right angles from the burn to the pond. There also appears to be a collapsed drain under the causeway. The northerly end of the two wall footings is joined by the stone footings of a gable. <1>
