Full Description

Mound (NR) OS 6" map, (1960)

Pict's House (Remains of): A small mound overgrown with grass.
Name Book 1873.

This shapeless mound, c9m diameter, has been mutilated along S periphery by construction of a ditch, and along E side by coastal erosion. It is composed of small stones and earth with only a few larger stones at N edge - probably field clearance. Neither its size, shape nor composition suggest an antiquity, and nothing is known of its nature or purpose.
Visited by OS (R B) 24 February 1965.

No change. The mound is 0.7m high.
Visited by OS (J M) 8 July 1982.
