NT22SW 19 200 241 NT 200 241 Craigie Rig Droveway sign-wall A new class of minor monument is suggested, that of 'droveway sign-wall', so named by analogy with 'road sign-post'. Its function was to warn drovers that a droveway ahead was forbidden by reason of danger or trespass. Its structure is an isolated length of drystone wall, 3-50m in length. Eight examples are known to date. They also mark droveways and indicate the direction of droving. W Lonie 1995
