Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Southwest of Lentran Hill are ruins of a croft with a large rectangular pond immediately in front at the south, probably used for steeping purposes. There is another similar feature on the same line a short distance to the west. <1>
