Full Description

NMRS Report: (22/11/2005)
NN59SE 48 5785 9000

The remains of a rectangular structure were recorded here during a detailed archaeological survey of Strathmashie Community Forest near Laggan, Highland. The survey was carried out to assess the evidence for past human use and to ascertain whether there was enough archaeology to develop a heritage trail in the forest. The structure was built in drystone, with the remains now moss and turf covered. It measures 12.9m x 5.1m and the walls survive in places to 0.5m in height. There is a 1.1m wide entrance in the centre of the NW wall. Nearby is a small clearance cairn, 2m x 2m and 0.6m in height.
