Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Above Ladystone Farm, there is a circular enclosure which may be a hut circle with a very eroded rampart and outer ditch: the diameter of the rampart is 12 yards. It is hidden in scrub on the south side next the old road and an entrance cannot be identified. <1>
