Details Site of a souterrain (Wainwright's Airlie III), one of two souterrains known to have existed on the farm of Barns of Airlie as well as the extant one (NO35SW0019). It was destroyed before 1864, according to the nineteenth century antiquarian Jervise. On 24 June 1951 Wainwright and D. B. Taylor noted a possible location for this or another souterrain settlement, i.e. a heavy concentration of boulders and slabs spread over an area of two or three thousand square feet in the field adjoining the entrance to NO35SW0019 and 45.7 m to 60.9 m from it, and on a bearing of 260 degrees (magnetic). The farmer could give them no further information and only excavation can confirm the site. When revisited by the OS in 1977, it was noted that a 'pronounced natural amorphous rise is evident at the map reference but there is now no surface spread of stone. The field, now under pasture, is regularly ploughed'.
