Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Groam of Annat.
In permanent pasture which has on occasion been cultivated there are very faint traces for 24 yards of a straight rampart running S.W.-N.E. with the upcast from each side. At the S.W. end there is a sharp right angled turn towards the N.W. where after 7 yards all trace is lost. A similar feature can be seen at the N.E. end but only a 4 yard length up from the corner can be traced. This linear earthwork appears to be one side of a square or rectangular enclosure. <1>
