Description

The monument comprises the remains of a number of circular enclosures and other cropmarks covering a field to the W of Millhaugh farm steading.

The remains form part of a prehistoric settlement which has only recently been scheduled. This is a rescheduling to reduce the area slightly, following discussion with the owner.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the visible features and an area around them in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is irregular in shape with maximum dimensions of 310m NE-SW by 225m as marked in red on the accompanying map.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as an extensive and complex prehistoric settlement which has the potential to enhance considerably our understanding of the history of settlement of lower Strathearn. It is of particular importance because of the survival nearby of other traces of early settlement, of different types.
