Full Description

NMRS Report: (06/07/2007 08:37:53)
NH92NE 34.00

Four burnt mounds are situated in rough pasture on a SE-facing slope about 600m NE of Balnuick farmsteading. They are strung out over a distance of 200m on both sides of an un-named stream. All of the mounds are roughly circular or oval on plan, measuring up to 10m in diameter, but two probably overly smaller, earlier, mounds. A turf was removed from the surface of each mound, in all cases revealing a core comprising angular fragments of burnt stone and small fragments of charcoal contained within a matrix of loose black soil.
