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.
At the upside of a deer fence there is a prominent cairn of 9 yards diameter which appears to be an outlier of the uppermost cairns mentioned in Site No. 78. Still on this same side of the deer fence are lengths of low boulder walling running in more than one direction which have no connection with the walling mentioned in Site No.78 (see MHG34237). <1>

Note: Site not visible on aerial photographs so location based on grid coordinates. (T. Blackie 14/08/23)
