NS4784 : Dry-stone wall

near to Croftamie, Stirling, Great Britain

Dry-stone wall
Dry-stone wall
The land on both sides of the wall and fence is used for rough grazing. The woods in the background are also shown in NS4784 : Moorland and forest edge.

To the left of the dyke, and running parallel to it, are traces of a ridge, an earthen bank; despite the tall grass, the line of the ridge is visible in this photograph, entering the picture just over halfway up the left-hand edge. Just to the right of the ridge is a ditch (which was partly water-filled when this picture was taken).

The earthen bank and ditch pre-date the dry-stone dyke (as explained at NS4783 : Eastern side of old enclosure), and are an outlying part of a field system that was associated with the long-disappeared farmstead of East Cameron: NS4783 : The ruins of East Cameron.

The broad hill visible just right of centre in the background is Gualann (NS4594).
