Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Northwest of Leachkin. Two parallel turf walls 18 feet apart running in mature fir wood northeast from Leachkin - Blackfold old road. This appears to be an old drove road blocked off by a later turf wall alongside the Leachkin - Blackfold road, now disused as a through road. <1>
