Full Description

NMRS Report: (16/11/2005)
NN59SE 31 5709 9078

The remains of a NE-SW running drystone retaining wall at the base of a very steep S-facing slope was recorded here during a detailed desktop and walkover survey of Strathmashie Forest ahead of a proposed heritage trail. Enough archaeological features were found to make the trail worthwhile. It stands up to 0.6m high and is collapsed in places. It possibly relates to an enclosure wall noted on the 1st edition OS map of 1872.
