Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. South of Rhevackin
A damp hollow runs south eastwards from the forestry boundary fence. It curves round a steep sided knoll then runs westwards. Underneath the foliage of recently felled dense spruces, an eroded rampart with a silted up ditch on each side, 3 yards apart, can be traced intermittently as it curves round the other side of this promontory as if it formed a stock enclosure. <1>
