Full Description

Situated on the south side of the river, this site is on both sides of a minor burn, with an extensive area of improved ground on the valley floor to the north. The site is at a point where the main road turns abruptly to cross the river from the south bank to the north; a track continues on the south side and may have been the original approach road to Dalbreac House.

760 Enclosure - NH 32069 54812 On the north side of a track and on a glacial terrace above the valley floor, this enclosure is 200m west of the bridge, 758. It is triangular in shape, and bounded on the south by the wall, 759, which is 60m in length; on the west it is bounded by a low turf bank on the edge of a steep bank with the field below and on the NE by a vague grassy track which descends the bank to the field below. There is disturbed ground in the centre of the enclosure but no form could be made of the low humps. <1>
