The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Boblainy Wood.
A forestry ride goes through a scattered cairnfield at a point where six cairns are in close proximity; there is a much larger isolated round cairn of 9 yards diameter further away towards the N.E.. Also near this cairn, there is a straight length of crude boulder walling running roughly N.W. to S.E.. <1>
