Full Description

Post-medieval dyke west of Torr a' Chaise, Caithness.

A dyke identified in LiDAR data gathered by AOC Archaeology in 2011 as part of the mitigation for the visual impact on the archaeological landscape associated with the proposed Baillie Hill windfarm, Caithness. <1>

Not shown on OS 1st or 2nd edition maps so may be considerably older or more modern in origin. There are slight indications in the LiDAR data that it may continue for another 233m to the east [IS-L 07/07/2020].
