Full Description

In August 2015, a walkover survey was undertaken in Morangie Forest, Edderton by Anne Coombs on behalf of the Forestry Commission Scotland to identify and demarcate archaeological sites in advance of pre-thinning operations.

A substantial dyke runs north-south through this section of the forestry and may form part of the division between Tain parish to the east and Edderton parish to the west. It is mainly stone built with some turf in its construction. It is up to c.1.5m high and c.1m wide and forms part of the ride between the east part of the plantation and the west part. <1>
