Abstract


The prehistoric monuments include three unpublished chambered cairns, the fine megalithic cist at Hailie, Largs, a pair of standing stones at Kames, Cowel which look like the portal stones of a chamber, six round cairns, domestic structures (an earth-house, hut circles and enclosures) of uncertain age, two newly discovered vitrified forts, two brochs and a number of duns or forts. The medieval remains include four motes, earthworks at Buzzart Dykes, a large medieval hut circle and 'Wallace's Stone'. The latter is decorated by a pecked cross of the Maltese type.
