763 Possible Building - NH 32866 55140 was recorded by NOSAS in 2007 as part of the Scotland's Rural Past Project. On the west bank of the Allt Ach’-Lorachain, within a fenced area of young forest, a recessed rectangle platform could be the site of a house. It is roughly 6m x 4m and the embankment which has some stone composition is 1.5m in height. Bracken covered. A ruined building appears at this site on the 1st edition OS survey. The plan for the court case of 1835 also has “Duncan Grants fathers’ house” in the position of this building, on the west bank of the burn. Duncan Grant was found guilty of the culpable homicide of James Macdonald. <1>
