Four small earthwork mounds are visible on aerial photographs to the south-west of Columbjohn Wood. The mounds are aligned along the south-east edge of a track, are roughly circular in shape and measure between 7 to 8 metres in diameter. The mounds were probably the remains of tree mounds of post medieval date. They are not visible on more recent images and have probably been levelled.
