Notes

A Bronze Age cairnfield, hut circle settlement and associated field system located on the east-facing slopes of Garner Bank. The cairnfield comprises over 30 circular and oval-shaped clearance cairns. The field system includes 2 stone banks or walls forming the northern and south-western boundaries of the cairnfield and field system. The south-western boundary is also marked by a line of 6 stones. A further stone wall or bank may originally have formed part of an enclosure. The hut circle settlement abuts the south-eastern side of this wall. It consists of a rectangular stone-walled enclosure divided into two smaller enclosures. The uphill enclosure seems to contain the remains of a hut circle, while the lower appears sunken and is interpreted as a small stock pen. Scheduled.
