Full Description

140522 855087 Kingsburgh 03a EB212b: The structure was visited by A Welti and A MacInnes in 2010 as part of research for a dissertation on hut circles in Wester Ross. This was part of a degree course overseen by Aberdeen University. 20 m to N of 2 grass covered ring mounds adjoining one another on a gentle SW facing slope, (EB212 and 212a - see MHG38867) are remains of a slightly sloping circular platform in an arc with a bank 0.8 m thick. This could be a HC platform. There are remains of other structures in the vicinity. The whole area is heavily grazed. <1> <2>

[Note: a database was set up as part of research for the dissertation and was subsequently expanded as an extension of the We Digs Project (see website link below). The full access database can be made available to enquirers/researchers if requested - contact HER for details]
