Full Description

A walkover survey at Lón Liath was undertaken in 2015 by Rough Bounds Archaeology et al, covering a large level open field of old feannagan or rigs running north-east south-west for over 300 metres and over 80 metres at its widest point between the Lón Liath burn and the woodland.

Site 14. Near the top of the rigs, 4 cairns made of large stones. The cairn furthest to the east has a line of at least 5 large footing stones running down hill by a small burn. The others placed relatively evenly distanced from each other but not in line. <1>

NGR adjusted based on 2012 aerial photographs. <2>
