Disused sheepfold
The sheepfold is located beside a footpath and a NS4277 : Stone wall, and is divided into two parts by an internal wall. When first recorded, c.1860, on OS maps, it was already noted as having fallen into disuse.

See NS4277 : Disused sheepfold for another view.

In the upper right corner of the present image, part of NS4376 : The Long Crags, the escarpment of the Kilpatrick Hills, can be seen. A smaller hill is visible on the skyline, directly behind the sheepfold; it is called NS4377 : Roundwood Hill, and has an ancient enclosure on top, within which is a cup-marked boulder: NS4377 : Cup-marks on a stone.
