ND 2415 7248. A long-house, 30m E-W by 5m by 1m high, grass-covered, divided internally and attached to a wall.
R J Mercer 1981

Though nothing is shown at the location given by Mercer (Mercer 1981) on 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map, (Caithness, 1876), sheet 1, this building is probably that depicted slightly to S and 20m NW of Corsback Corn Mill (ND27SW 47.00). It also may be the building quoted in the ONB as being a 'dwelling house near' to the mill (ONB 1872).
