Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Boblainy Wood.
A short distance down from the forestry road there is an undamaged hut circle of 13 yards diameter with its entrance towards the S.E.. From here, boulder walling can be traced for a short distance running in a westerly direction. A little distance from the hut circle towards the N.E. there is a length of boulder walling running northwards; this is badly damaged by forestry ploughing. <1>
