taken 12 years ago, near to Renton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Round enclosure on Carman Muir
Round enclosure on Carman Muir
The feature was originally reported as a hut circle; however, as described in the end-note, it was later considered more likely that this had been an animal enclosure. See the WoSAS link in the end-note for further details.

See NS3678 : Round enclosure on Carman Muir for another view, and for the main description.

In the present photograph, the circular feature fills the width of the image; the curving ridge of its far side is evident, and its interior makes up the foreground.
Circular enclosure on Carman Muir

A low, indistinct, circular bank, about 14 metres in diameter, outlines this feature, which is difficult to pick out on the ground. It was originally reported as a hut circle, but a later opinion (see comments from 2014 in LinkExternal link at WoSAS) is that it had probably been an animal enclosure. See LinkExternal link for a satellite view centred on this feature (which is, depending on the date of the images, either invisible or barely visible in satellite imagery).
