Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Milifiach.
Stone walling of two rectangular enclosures which may be domestic are in dense scrub next to, and at the west side of an arable field. Local tradition informs that there was a temple in the field and flat gravestones were removed from an old burial ground situated near the Milifiach boundary and were built into the Wester Moniack steading. This field was known in Gaelic as 'An Druim' and at one time was part of the lands owned by the Bishop of Moray.<1>
