Full Description

A farmstead comprising one partially roofed, one unroofed and one roofed building is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Ross-shire and Cromartyshire 1881, sheet xli), but it is not shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1992).
Information from RCAHMS (SAH) 1 April 1996

In August 2015, a walkover survey was undertaken in Morangie Forest, Edderton by Anne Coombs on behalf of the Forestry Commission Scotland to identify and demarcate archaeological sites in advance of pre-thinning operations.

In an area of grass with scattered planted deciduous trees, this building is depicted on the 1st Edition 1843-1882 map up to and including the OS Six inch map 1888-1910. It appears as two roofed buildings, one small building to the west of a partially roofed long house on the east side. The site is now a substantial scatter of large stones and lies to the north of the well recorded on the maps. <1>
