Full Description

A possible fish trap (NMRS MS 738/31, no.78), situated on the S shore of Loch Leven, was recorded during a pre-afforestation survey by AOC (Scotland Ltd). It comprises a circular trench measuring 2m in diameter with a linear 'feeder trench', 3.5m, long, leading off into the loch. The purpose of the feature is unclear although it may be a fish trap.
