Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Beaufort.
Running towards the river and at the east side of the castle and on a lower level is a very eroded rampart on which stands a row of mature lime trees. A disused roadway is terraced into the slope on its west side and parallel, which may have led to the rear of old Castle Dounie. <1>
