Site K203; Lime kiln. On Chisholm Land is a large spread of lichen-covered stones on the side of a slope to the east. This is above the small burn that separates the bracken-covered slopes from the improved pasture on the low hill to the east. In the centre of the spread of stones is a pit, whose walls consist of courses of laid stones. These are particularly prominent on the eastern aspect, ie facing down the hill. A setting of large stones forms the top of the southern rim of the bowl, which at its maximum is 1m deep. <1>
