Full Description

Houses, pens and structures were noted by WCAS during a 2011 DBA and walkover survey in advance of a woodland creation scheme.They were located at SE corner of survey Area 3 in an area of dispersed settlement
situated to the E and W sides of a burn within scrub and trees. The structures comprise ephemeral turf and stone foundations under grass, heather and bracken that are only barely visible within the landscape. See attached report for detailed description of individual structures, sites nos. 150, 151a-e.
An area of rig and furrow was also noted to the west of the structures, on S-facing slope located in SW corner of Survey Area 3. The rigs are generally aligned N-S and measure up to 1.5m wide and stand to 0.5m high, with 0.6m-wide furrows. <1>
