NN59SE 36 5853 9281

The remains of 4 rectangular structures were 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. The northernmost feature consists only of a rectangular slightly sunken area. It measures approximately 7m x 3m. Around 8m to the S is are the remains of a building measuring 9m x 3m. The drystone walls are masked in areas by turf and vegetation cover. South of this building is another, which measures 5m x 2.5m and is defined by shallow turf banks, with occassional stones showing through. To the W of this are the remains of a larger building, 12m x 4m. It is composed of 2 parts, the first measuring 4m x 2.5m and a less-defined section, 9.5m x 4m. A slightly curving dyke extends in a N-S direction for around 20m to the E of the 4 structures.
