Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Lochlait.
Beyond a grassy clearing there is a crude stone dyke 14yds long, situated among conifers. This is fronted by a small, low, flat cairn covered with heather which appears to be square in shape. Nearby is a small robbed cairn destroyed by forestry ploughing. <1>
