Full Description

Several circular stone-built structures were identified on land exposed by low water at the top west end of Glen Cannich by Glenn Wilks, a walker, on the 29th June 2021. Following notification to Historic Environment Scotland, four members of the North of Scotland Archaeological Society and Mr Wilks visited this area on 27th July 2021. Their aim was to survey these structures and to obtain material for carbon dating before the waters of the loch rose again. Other structures in the area were also surveyed.

Lungard settlement; Enclosures. To the south of Building 2 (see MHG62518) are two sets of enclosures. The northern enclosure abuts the SE corner of the Building 2. A newer, roughly square enclosure to the south, 19m x 15m, with no opening, is partially surrounded by the older walls of a previous broken enclosure. <1>
