Full Description

NH69SE 36 661 908

A farmstead, comprising an L-shaped unroofed building of two compartments and two enclosures is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Sutherland 1879-81, cxi), but it is not shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1971).
Information from RCAHMS (AKK) 22 November 1995.

This farmstead was visited during the course of a forestry survey by Headland Archaeology (NMRS MS 899/25, no.6). The building depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Sutherland 1879-81, sheet cxi) has been largely destroyed, probably through the establishment of a logging camp or sawmill here in World War II by the Canadian Forestry Corps (Mr Mackay, Bailenacuaile, pers.comm.). The associated enclosures were found to be more extensive on the ground than depicted on the 1st edition OS map.

NH 66 90 (centre) A short-notice forestry survey was undertaken by Headland Archaeology Ltd over roughly 7.5km2 of land to the W of Spinningdale on the northern shore of the Dornoch Firth. A total of 28 features or groups of features of archaeological interest were recorded, 19 of which had previously been noted. The majority are post-medieval settlement sites (buildings, farmsteads and settlement sites) recorded first by the OS in 1874.
