Full Description

Àrdgaserie. This area is marked on the Roy Map of 1747 as Ardgashrig and on Thompson’s Atlas of 1832 as Ardgassick, but does not appear on any Ordnance Survey map. The land around Loch Doire Ghloghain is now very wet and boggy, hence the features noted are ranged on the hillsides to the east and west of the wide glen. It was surveyed in 2013 by Rough Bounds Archaeology et al.

Site 14. Low walled degraded possible enclosure at a position where the N/S running ridge has a gap E/W around 8 to 10 mtres wide. To the west of the ridge is a cliff falling steeply into the next glen. A natural but possibly man made levelled area runs W/E for over 20 metres including the possible enclosure which is c.6 mtrs wide at the western end. <1>

NGR adjusted based on 2012 aerial photographs. <2>
