Full Description

In June 2015, a walkover survey was undertaken in Lamington Forestry block, Tain by Anne Coombs on behalf of the Forestry Commission Scotland to identify and demarcate archaeological sites in advance of clear fell operations.

Site 1; Field dyke which extends through the woodland and is most visible below the power line. Where the dyke is below the power lines it is partially covered with gorse and will not be within any felling area. It turns and can just be traced below the trees. The structure was taped and marked by gps and photographed. <1>
