Full Description

A farmstead comprising an unroofed L-shaped building with an attached enclosure 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 clear fell operations.

Farmstead; within the un-thinned area of the plantation there is a scatter of large stones which may form a rectangular structure. A small piece of blue and white pottery was found lying on the surface. This appears to be the remains of the unroofed buildings and associated enclosure depicted on the 1st Edition Survey map of 1842-83. <1>

Note: Site not visible on aerial photographs so approximate dimensions copied from 1st Edition OS 6". <2> (T. Blackie 7/10/21)
