Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. West of Cnoc na Moine. A flat bottomed ditch 6 feet wide with the upcast to each side cones out of the young fir wood on the west side of the march fence, then goes in an easterly direction for 36 yards, where it now curves slightly towards the southeast and is lost in a wider forestry track. This linear feature was, prior to the introduction of wire fencing, used as a track. <1>

NGR adjusted based on 1999-2001 aerial photographs. <2>
