Abstract


The structure at Midhouse was a stone-built chamber with passageway. No artefacts were recovered. At Lintlaw two inverted urns containing cremated human bone were found in close proximity to a cist containing charcoal and a fragment of burnt bone. The cairn at Drumelzier covered seven cists. Artefacts included six urns, cremated human bone, worked flint, a jet armlet and a whetstone. A slab with carved ring markings was also found.
