Full Description

A possible pen was noted during a DBA and walkover survey by RoCAS in 2012 on behalf of Forestry Commission Scotland. It was located under heather, grass and moss and took the form of a very degraded semi-circular low bank attached to a slight break of slope. It measured 8m east to west by 6m and spread to 0.8m wide and stood 0.3m high. <1>
Note: Based on two layers of APs (1999-2001, Getmapping), this small pen is clearly part of a larger enclosure extending to the south. The associated polygon reflects the larger enclosure. S Salem 04/10/2013
