Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989.
Ladycairn Farm. This site is known as Relugas, where there are ruins of a long house (84 feet) and yard, which was said to be a stance of John Cameron, Corriecoille, the famous early 19th Century cattle dealer from Lochaber. Across the burn at Cnoc an t-Sionnach (Sheet 28 OS 551400), local tradition says that a line of 3 butts used for shooting wolves can still be pointed out, but this is very doubtful. Only one could possibly be identified now as such, and it might have been somebody
