Full Description

A walkover survey of the area east and south of Tòrr a’Bheithe (Hill of the Birch) was undertaken in 2014 by Rough Bounds Archaeology et al.

Site 3. Possible ancient Bronze age wall where it runs south to the burn and NE up a gentle slope.

Note; "The line of degraded walling noted at Wp 3 was noted by extant large stones using outcrops of rocks along the way. Running uphill to the north-east and south towards the burn, it was very similar to a wall recorded at Wp 6 on the 3. Tòrr a’Bheithe survey and later identified as probably Bronze Age (pers. Comm. Martin Wildgoose 2014)." <1>

NGR adjusted based on 2012 aerial photographs. <2>

Note; Only part of the ruined structure was visible on the aerial photographs (T.Blackie 10/5/19)
