Kittlegairy Burn Settlement

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


Friday 23/7/04
The forest opens out to a clearing to the east of the firetrack (again there are Forestry Commission ā€˜Sā€™ posts around the site where they have cleared the trees from it). I climb up from the drainage channel at the side of the fire road and can see one of the ramparts due to the presence of many outer facing stones still in place. This settlement sits in a hollow with the hillside it is built on actually higher that it- so not a defensive position. The interior is irregular and there are no discernable features to be seen.
