Full Description

Elongate, bracken-covered mound, 6m x 2m, 1m high, trends 142o, parallel to the slope contour. It is possible that this feature is natural, however, given the prominence of the hut circles of Features 10 & 11 (above), it is likely that it is archaeological.

A number of other possible bronze Age/Iron Age features were recorded during walkover survey in Strath Lunndaidh. <1>
