Full Description

Large D shaped enclosure probably related to site 88 or another site in the fenced area. Measures 18.8 m NE/SW by 13.7 m across widest part. Defined by low turf-covered bank with some stone visible in fabric Burrows at the NE side reveal two courses of stone 0.5 m high (subangular quartzite). The ground level within the enclosure is higher than the ground at the S, E and W suggesting build-up of soil within it, perhaps through cultivation. Alternatively, bank has trapped windblown sand.
On plateau overlooking Loch Borralie to E. Grass and bracken covered.
Kailyard or small field.
Recommendations: Monitor, survey and control rabbits, and control bracken. <1><2>
