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.

This well is part of a depleted farmstead (see MHG20806) and there is a small burn flowing north from it. The well is partially lined with stones and there is a collapsed wood and wire fence around it. <1>
