Full Description

A possible boundary dyke at Shurrery, Caithness.

The feature was recorded by C Dagg during a pre-afforestation project walkover survey in 2004. Field boundary from ND 0348 5731 to ND 0346 5728. A line of large stones, apparently placed, of which one is definitely set upright and, at the west end of this, a short section of probable turf dyke. This is most likely a field boundary or field clearance, and may be contemporary with the nearby hut circles, or with early modern structures removed in the construction of the sheep shelter. <1>
