Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. S.W. of Batchaggan Farm steading there is a small, flat topped area on a rocky knoll, overgrow with whins. There is a scatter of big stones around the foot the knoll, which seems to indicate a crude stone structure once stood here. <1>

This site has now been completely destroyed by the construction of a new road leading to a recently built house. <2>
