Full Description

(NN 09 60) Near to the late 18th century Callart House are a heap of moss-clad stones, the sole remains of an earlier Callart House burned in the early 17th century to rid it of the plague.

This house was situated at NN 092 603, on the opposite side of the stream to the present Callart House (Information from G Macdonald Esq., Callert). All that remains is a low platform completely covered with a large quantity of stones cleared from the fields nearby.
