Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Brockies Corner.
The right-angled corner of stone footings can be seen in and near the corner of the wood. This is the site of the former Brockies Inn. Further up in the wood and beyond a turf dyke running across the slope is a short length of very eroded rampart running west wards from near the boundary dyke next Phoineas Farm. It has a base now 4 yards wide in its best section and with the upcast coming from each side. Yet further up the slope there are very faint traces of a silted up flat bottomed ditch 2 yards wide which also runs westwards for a short distance from the vicinity of the stone boundary dyke. Thereafter all traces are lost in the dense forestry east of Paslaidh. <1>
