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 turf and stone dyke runs east-west off the east side of the main north-south boundary dyke (Morangie Forest). It is heather and tree covered in an area of mixed woodland. It is possible there are the remains of a ditch on the south side of the dyke. The dyke is visible on all the maps . <1>
