The site is situated on the north-eastern shoulder of the Bricklieve Mountains, overlooking Lough Arrow to the east. The proposed development is located close to the site of a ringfort, which contains the remains of a probable hut site (SMR 34:192(01, 02). A second ringfort is located upslope to the west (SMR 34:193). Testing, by means of four machine-dug trenches, revealed nothing of archaeological significance. The only feature noted was that of the remains of a field boundary, which was removed within living memory.
