Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Lonbuie Wood.
A U-shaped non-drainage ditch with the upcast to each side runs across the contour in an easterly direction until, after a considerable distance, it ends at a swampy hollow. Near its west end at Lonbuie Lodge forestry road, there are traces of other linear earthworks. <1>
