Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Holm Wood.
22 yards down from a forestry track and overlooking a damp area there appears to be a very severely damaged hut circle of 13 yards diameter. Thirty five yards to the west, on the end of the terrace, are traces of what may have been a robbed cairn. <1>
