Lump of Bonlee

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


From Craig Glas head west through a low lying marsh until a small sream which has to be jumped, once up onto drier or firmer land you have reached the Lump of Bonlee. Heather burning has revealed several hut circles and a cairn in the area, perhaps more sites will be revealed with further burning.

NJ4004207911 could well be a small hut circle or a wee cairn that has been houked. It is 5m wide.

NJ4009507733 possibly another houked out cairn.

NJ4005007769 One of the better preserved hut circles, it sits at almost 9m wide.

NJ4000407775 Another quite well preserved hut circle, this one is just over 6m wide.
