Burn of Langskaill

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


The lower of the two parallel lines of the burn as it passes NE of the community centre. Unlike the other stone walls line the sides to a height of 1.4m at a distance apart of 4m. But where it passes under the road the bottom is lower, giving a total height of 2.5m. So the main dimensions are the same as those of the Kirk Ness Dyke and it would appear to bear the same relationship to the Round Howe "pseudo-broch" as that does to the coastal Kirk Ness mound Which would appear to make it a drystone dyke boundary and cru also. wideford Posted by wideford
