Hepburn Crags unenclosed settlement (Tillside)

A group of unenclosed prehistoric round houses were discovered by aerial photography in the 1980s. The houses each comprise a ring bank and seem to be associated with a wider field system made up of linear banks and clearance cairns. A cup marked stone was discovered sticking out of one of the clearance cairns.
