Full Description

A walkover survey of the Claggan and area west of Milburn was undertaken in 2014 by Rough Bounds Archaeology et al.

Site 4. Footings of a structure c.8 x 3 externally, long side facing E/W with a possible entrance to the east. While quite high, building would have been sheltered from the north by a rising ridge and more distant hills would have given some shelter from the prevailing south-westerlies. A second feature of low footings evident on west side of main structure also c.8 x 3 long side N/S. <1>

NGR adjusted based on 2012 aerial photographs. <2>
