Information from RCAHMS (SAH) 16 April 1996 <1><2>

Further information about this site was submitted by John MacDonald, a local resident, in March 2010. The site of the buildings is on a small ,fairly level ledge on an otherwise steep slope, situated between two estate roads which pass fairly close to each other. There are many indications of the buildings there, although about half of the site is obscured by brush and fallen trees. There are many remaining walls, mainly one course high, an almost complete rectangle is openly visible and under the brushwood an area appears to have been cut into the hillside, with a retaining wall of rubble. <3><4>
