A cropmark enclosure was first recorded at this location by RCAHMS aerial photography. <1>

A visitor to the HER website reported that the context of Anderson's description indicates that the cairn he is describing is in fact one hundred and fifty paces to the east of Newton on Petty (MHG2929). It is possible that this coincides with this cropmark site. Anderson had idenitifed "two circles, each six yards in diameter and almost touching each other, about fifty paces from the road and a hundred and fifty paces from the temple just described" ie Newton of Petty. <2>-<3>
