7.4.6 Enclosed Settlement Sites

The recently uncovered settlement sites at Midross (NMRS Nos. NS38NE 71 and NS38NE 72 ) near Loch Lomond have been putatively dated to the Iron Age, including a roundhouse site and what may be a pallisaded enclosure ditch containing up to seven timber roundhouses (Becket 2005). The superimposed timber roundhouses at Ardnadam (NMRS No. NS17NE 7) are also likely of Iron Age date and the published report postulated that the dyke that surrounded the site was also constructed in this period (Rennie 1984).
