Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Cnoc Dubh, Arrie.
A few yards east of a cluster of three very minor earthworks which mark the site of pre-war potato pits, there is a linear knoll. On the top of this steep-sided, uneven plateau, there are traces here and there of the footings of a range of crude buildings which are perhaps of 17th century date or earlier. One of the small buildings on what may have been a defended site appears to have been square with rounded corners. <1>

NGR adjusted based on 1999-2001 vertical aerial photographs. <2>
