Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Beaufort.
On a wooded spur and close to the southwest side of Kiltarlity Village sewage treatment plant there are faint traces of a sub-rectangular enclosure with an outer ditch still visible on two sides. The length at its longest point is 24 yards; the width varies from 20 yards down to 15 yards at the narrowest end. A little distance further down a length of low rampart or turf walling can be traced running northwards in scrub; this feature was probably for stock control. <1>

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