Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Altnacardich.
As the result of heavy grazing in a pony paddock there can be seen the traces of an old road going in the direction of the settlement at Site No. 36 in the record. Cultivation has completely destroyed all evidence near the top end of this small field, bit further down there are traces, for a few yards, of stone kerbing. Also in this area there are a few low, robbed clearance cairns. The old road angles in a straight line across most of the length of the field. <1>
