This might be a help-
There is an article by Barri Jones published in 1993 in which he reports of
the site of Easter Galacantray, by Cawdor as "The Carbon 14 date recovered
from the demolition of these buildings falls into the bracket 1880 + /- 20
BP 80-130 AD (GrN 14643) and despite the lack of readily diagnostic finds,
taken with the structural evidence now available makes it very difficult to
argue against identification as a briefly held single period fort;"
With regards Balnageith - same article - "of a site morphologically
resembling a Roman fort .........not only has the ditch been recovered but
also the post holes of six-posted timber tower......."
Work at at Easter Galacantray undertaken by C M Daniels of Newcastle
Article is B Jones, I Keiller and K Maude (1993) The Moray Aerial Survey -
Discovering the Prehistoric and proto-Historic Landscape in W D H Sellar

By all accounts both forts were deemed as Roman.

and Balnageth (Moray)? Informal contacts suggest that no confirmation was
ever forthcoming for Barri Jone's belief that these were auxiliary forts.
