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.
In a bracken covered area overlooking Teanacoil Burn there are the stone footings of a small bothy, 8 yards x 4 yards; the entrance appears to have been on the S.W. side. Running in an easterly direction from the vicinity of the bothy are the traces, for a short distance, of two straight parallel turf ramparts with their ditches to the south and 16 yards apart. <1>
