124 Possible Building - NH 4035 5477 To the west of a small burn, this building is roughly rectangular and on a NW-SE axis, it is recessed into the slope and measures 4m x 2m internally. There appears to be an entrance at the lower/west end. There is a short section of dry stone wall to the north but it has been much mutilated by vehicle tracks (probably timber extraction tracks dating from WW2). In view of its situation and the history of the surrounding landscape this building may be another still. <1>
