Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. S.W. of Creagan Dubh.
There can be traced with great difficulty, owing to fallen timber and bracken, crude boulder walling which appears to be roughly circular in places and perhaps enclosing over an acre. It takes the form of a terrace with silted up outer ditch at the S.W. side. Also in this area a length of boulder walling running downhill in the same easterly direction as the terrace ends at a large stone. <1>
