Full Description

Rectilinear feature 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>

There are vague indications that other dykes and/or enclosures lie around this feature. It is similar in size and appearance to another enclosure identified to the north (see MHG53681) [IS-L 28/07/2020].
