Notes

The remains of a prehistoric settlement on the northern shoulder of Hart Heugh. It comprises an irregular enclosure, roughly oval in shape, which measures 15 metres by 30 metres. It is defined by a sinuous bank of earth and stone, similar in nature to the enclosed settlement situated a few metres to the west (NT 92 NE 87). At the south west end the enclosure is cut into the hillslope and the bank forms a stone revetted edge. Scheduled.
