Full Description

A desk-based assessment and walkover survey in 2008 identified a large area of arable ground situated on the sloping ground to the east of a miry basin, surrounding a small unnamed lochan. The arable is almost square in plan and is enclosed on the east side by an earth and stone dyke and on the south side by a drain. The interior is covered in broad lazy beds, 4m in width and 0.2 high, orientated east-west. <1>
