Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Lentran Farm.
Near the bottom of the south slope of a ridge covered with mature hardwood, there is a very eroded rampart running east to west in a straight line for 55 yards gradually curving round as it crosses the ridge at right angles with its very silted up ditch on the inside. After another 35 yards it meets the fence of an arable field. <1>
