The entire course of the enclosure can be seen in this view; for example, one of its corners is located just over halfway up the right-hand edge of the photo. See NS4278 : The Spouts Burn for the context of the enclosure.
Enclosures beside the Spouts Burn
Immediately to the east of the Spouts Burn, a low bank forms an irregular four-sided enclosure which is shown on the first-edition OS map (surveyed in 1860), but not on later maps; this is the enclosure "90m to the SW" that is described at LinkExternal link (at Canmore). Its course is still visible on the ground; see LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view, in which the four corners of the enclosure are indicated by green markers. Also marked on that view is a larger, fainter, and more irregular enclosure on the eastern side of the burn.
