Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Rheindown Wood.
There are at least nine fairly large, forestry-ploughed cairns; most have been robbed. Through this cairnfield a very badly eroded rampart (ICE. - S.W.) runs for a short distance and is then obliterated. This is between a track and a dry ditch, both redundant. <1>
