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 Creag Dhomhainn. A narrow and very eroded non drainage ditch comes from the burn in a northerly direction for 47 yards. It appears that there may have been crude stone structures on each side of the ditch. A little distance away to the northeast there are the turf footings of an ancient building 12 yards x 6 yards. The site at OS 593437 is also quite near. <1>

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