Reaveley Hill enclosed settlement (Cheviotside)

These are the remains of an oval-shaped enclosure standing on the south-west slopes of a small hill. A bank of earth and stones surrounds it. An entrance on the north side has been strengthened with stones. A large bank divides the enclosure into two sections, and there are possible traces of other dividing banks. Two small rectangular enclosures stand outside the main enclosure, as does a hut circle. These are probably the remains of a Roman period farmstead.
