Full Description

Situated on the south side of the river, this site was recorded by NOSAS in 2007 as part of the Scotland's Rural Past Project and 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.
