Full Description

A turf and boulder boundary bank, running ENE-WSW, parallel to a bank further up slop (MHG54115). Probably associated with the areas of clearance cairns on the hill. It is possible that this is one of the lynchet features recorded by RCAHMS (see MHG28496), but it seems more probable that it represents a boundary bank. Heavily degraded, with only a portion surviving. <1>
