Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Beaufort.
Two lengths of low minor turf walling can be clearly seen between the arable field and dense shrubbery. One can be traced for 20 yards and the other for 24 yards. They are both curved and a few yards apart but appear to have converged in the arable field which seems to indicate they are of different periods. <1>
