Notes

On the east side of Ros Castle, on the highest point of the hill, is a platform of large undressed blocks, 6 metres by 2 metres by 0.6 metres high. Field investigations in 1990 found this to be a modern cairn superimposed upon a slight rise in the ground which may be the remains of a post medieval beacon stance.
