Full Description

An old 2m wide trackway extends sinuously W from the sheepfold at the E of the survey area, gently down to the Brora-Balnacoil-Rogart road to the W. At this point, it crosses a small burn and its S, downslope side is retained by a row of large boulders, as it often is on other steep sections along its length (Plate 29).

A prehistoric date is suggested. <1>
