Francis Maxwell Esqr.
060; 061 [Situation] In Craig Wood. A single embankment in the form of a crescent, the ends of which abut on a declivity on Highmains hill. This is supposed to have been a camp, by the inhabitants of the locality, and in all probability it may have been so. The South and West sides were protected by an embankment, the remaining sides were protected by a steep declivity formed in part by a perpendicular cliff nearly 100 feet high, no artificial construction was necessary in consequence. The whole is now grown over with fir & beech trees. The embankment is well defined.
