A walkover survey at Cul Beag/ Allt na Crionaiche was carried out by NOSAS members in Aug 2015. The remains of two farmsteads and associated enclosures are 3 kms west of Aultgowrie Bridge on the south facing slope above the Allt Goibhre at an altitude of 230m.

2. Main Enclosure – this large sub-rectangular grassy enclosure measures roughly 220m x 60m, it is on a NW-SE alignment and a gently south facing slope. It is surrounded for the most part by a substantial turf and stone wall, to the west and south sides of the enclosure steep slopes drop to the burn/river. The main farmstead sits within the enclosure at the north end and towards the south there is a small enclosure and a small building. <1>
