EHG846 - Building survey - Buildings at Balavoulin, Glenelg



Catherine Dagg


July 2002


Walkover and building surveys were carried out by C Dagg in 2002 at Balavoulin, Glenelg, in advance of excavations for a new water main. The ruined buildings the site comprised an abandoned cottage which had previously been a corn mill and the ancilliary buildings, one of which had disappeared from that shown on historic OS mapping, and the others converted to other use and subsequently fallen into disrepair. A previous water main and track had removed all trace of the tailrace and the section of the lade nearest the mill building. It was agreed that all work on the new pipeline could be confined to the 3m corridor of the existing access track. <1>
