taken 4 years ago, near to Renton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Possible hut circle on Carman Muir
Possible hut circle on Carman Muir
Short of planting little flags around the perimeter, or submitting a stereogram, there is no way to make this feature clearly visible in photographs. It is not evident in satellite imagery either.

This ancient site is about 14 metres across (45 feet) across. The circular interior is enclosed by a low, inconspicuous bank. Click on the end-note title for related views.

In the present picture, parts of the bank are visible because they are a little darker and greener than the surrounding muir. The left-hand edge of the circle is in front of, and slightly to the left of, the pylon on the left, and the right-hand edge of the circle is in front of the tiny section of partly snow-covered distant hills visible near the right-hand edge.

A low, indistinct, circular bank, about 14 metres in diameter, outlines this feature, which is difficult to pick out on the ground. In comments from 2014 in the site's WoSAS report LinkExternal link it is suggested that it was an animal enclosure rather than a hut circle. See LinkExternal link for a satellite view centred on this feature (which is not, or is barely, apparent in satellite imagery).
