Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. S.S.W. of South Clunes.
In an area which was re-seeded and worked over with heavy disc harrows in the early Nineteen-Seventies, there is still an ancient field wall visible and other raised linear features, also at least one ditch. To the westwards and on higher ground there is a cairn field. Further on and across a small stream, faint traces can be seen (at a certain stage when lying snow is thawing) of lazy beds running up and down the slope. <1>
