Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Boblainy Wood.
On the upside of the road, at OS 481395? there is a severely damaged hut circle of 12 yards diameter with its entrance towards the S.E.. A short distance further up there is low walling or rampart which appears to encircle the site on one side and may not be unconnected with the boulder walling on the down side of the forestry road. <1>
