Full Description

A group of six clearance heaps adjacent to hut D of group NH63SE 27. The heaps range in size from c. 4.0m in diameter to c. 6.0m.
Surveyed in 1989 as part of a survey of lands around Tardarroch, Daviot and Dunlichty to identify and map archaeological monuments threatened by the proposed afforestation scheme. <1>

Seven small cairns were identified on gently-sloping, unimproved ground. These are probably the clearance heaps identified by the Ordnance Survey as being associated with the hut-circles to the W and NE (NH63SE 27). Visited by RCAHMS (SDB) 4 November 1992.
