Only partly recorded, this camp lies on the east bank of the River Findhorn just west of Forres. The enclosure is defined by a V-shaped ditch approximately 10 ft. wide and 4 ft. deep (c.3.0 x 1.2 m) with a square cleaning-slot at its base. It is possible that the camp was possessed of six-post corner-towers and that the front of the rampart was revetted in timber, which would suggest a more permanent encampment.
