The initial objective of the project was to survey and record a well at the western end of the Hopetoun Estate but this was expanded to add a ground resi~tance survey when a cropmark was found on an RCAHMS aerial photograph. The eastern limb of the cropmark was adjacent to the well. This part of the cropmark was under grass but was crossed obliquely by a new farm track; the ground resistance measurements were made to the north and south of this track across the line of the cropmark. The southern side of the cropmark was in a ploughed area which was fieldwalked and produced little in the way of finds. On the north side of the flat topped hill, that was enclosed on three sides by the cropmark, the remains of a bank and ditch were found; the croprnark is not apparent on this side of the hill and the relationship between bank, ditch and cropmark is unknown. About 250m. to the north of the cropmark a linear feature was observed that crossed a field under cultivation; two very limited areas of ground resistance measurement were taken across this alignment where it emerged onto a field under grass.
