(NH 6543 3439) Kiln, consisting of a horse-shoe shaped mound with an interior chamber 5ft in diameter, which opens towards the road. Information from A A Woodham 9 August 1963.

There are at least five buildings and a kiln-barn in rough ground to the E of Clachindruim. One building (USN93 384) displays three successive phases, each with a bedneuk, and is overlain at its NNE end by a sheepfold. The kiln has a diameter of 1.6m and a wasted barn on the E side. Two of the buildings (USN93 420 and 421) lie in the garden of a modern cottage; one has cruck slots in the wall.
The sheepfold that overlies USN93 384 is shown on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Inverness-shire 1874, sheet xxxi). A settlement depicted on an eighteenth century plan of Bunneachtown SRO: RHP 1840) may be this site, under the name of Craigtown.
