Full Description

A possible enclosure at Allt Torigil, Caithness.

An enclosure 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>

If real and not just coincidental vegetation, it is a substantial feature measuring c. 75m x 54m surrounding what looks like a natural roughly triangular mound. It is not shown on OS 1st or 2nd edition maps [IS-L 08/07/2020].
