Information supplied by A Wakeling, 03/10/2003
This site was visited in 2011 during a walkover survey by A Wakeling and members of NOSAS as part of Scotland's Rural Past. Grassed footings of a small building were found about 25m north of the path, at the foot of the viewpoint slope, which would have sheltered the building from the west. The footings were 9.50m north to south, and 3m east to west internal. Beside the footings there was a small area of grassy ground, which has been cultivated. Rabbits have casted up sand and small stones and a slate pencil and ceramic fragments have been found. On the O.S. 1st Edition 6” map [Inverness-shire lviii,1867] it is shown as an unroofed building with another building 200m away to the north-east. There is no trace of this other building , it is probably under the road or was removed when Achantoul was built in 1906. <1>
