Full Description

A walkover survey in 2008 noted a pile of stones, 5m by 3m and 0.70m high, is situated on the south bank of the River Rannoch. It is possible that these stones were removed from the bed of the river to deepen it and increase flow. The site will be submerged by the proposed storage pond. It is unlikely to be of archaeological significance. <1>
