rampart has a breadth at base of 28' and a
height of 7'. There has been an entrance
about 8 feet wide
into the upper enclosure from the ravine near
the centre of the E. [East] arc at a low level, above
which the rampart rises on either side to a
height of from 6' to 7'. The ground immediately
before this entrance is wet and there appears
to be a spring in it. Beyond the lower
enclosure the promontory projects
with considerable declination to the side of
the burn. To the northward as shown
on the plan there stretches into the moorland
for a distance of a hundred yards or so
a deep hollow some 36' wide and from 7' to 8'
deep terminating abruptly at its upper end.
(I wonder if this had something to do with
the flooding of the ravine from the burn, as
the former is marked "The Lake" on the map.)
