Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Balnagriasehin.
A circular kiln was built into a bank close to, and east of, the dwelling house. There is what appears to have been a robbed cairnfield in a small area at the bottom of the field below Ladycairn farmhouse. A short distance northwards from Ballone farm steading and beyond a deep dip, at the east side of, and near, an old ruin, there is a very eroded circular enclosure. This has been a substantial earthwork with a diameter of 15 yards. <1>
