Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Femnock.
Near the boundary fence next to Boblainy there are, among scrub, the turf footings of the south gable end of a crude bothy 5 yards wide which appears to be 8 yards in length. A little distance into the scrub towards the N.W. there are traces of a straight, very eroded, rampart running north eastwards. The very silted up ditch is to the S.E. <1>
