Full Description

A walkover survey in 2008 identified a small level uncultivated platform in the NW corner of an arable field which may have been the stance for a structure. Considering the distance from the main Tearnait settlement, some sort of structure may have been necessary. It consists of a rectangular level platform, 11m NE-SW by 3m and no stone foundation layer is discernible. <1>
