Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. W.S.W. of Arrie.
There is a cairnfield in this area of forestry; also a ditch which appears to be ancient. This runs northeastwards from near the public road and stops abruptly at forestry extraction earth works. <1>
