Full Description

Vertical APs taken in 2021 show the cropmarks of a group of at least thirteen pits forming two lines at Obsdale, Alness. The pits are c.1m in diameter and resemble the remains of a Neolithic long house. There are other more ephemeral features surrounding them, some of them pit-like and some form vague linear features. Others may be nothing more than tree holes. <1>
