West Sinkside Iron Age homestead (Kirknewton)

These are the slight remains of a circular Iron Age enclosure. It was surrounded by a single palisade for which the trench is still visible. A shallow scoop marks the site of a possible hut. Ploughing has destroyed the rest of the site, and trees now cover the area.
