Full Description

Crop-marks showing the ditches of what may be a square barrow and a circular barrow have been recorded 180m ENE of Kerrowaird farmhouse. The square barrow measures about 10m square within a ditch which may be interrupted by causeways at the corners. Immediately to the SW there is what appears to be a circular barrow measuring about 8m in diameter within a narrow ditch. There are other possible barrows in an area of indeterminate crop-marks about 100 m to the SSE.
