Full Description

NMRS Report: (19/02/2007 11:33:41)
NJ01NE 49 NJ 06546 19803

This former farmsteading, now in use as a private residence, contains a single-storey, S-facing cottage that is still occupied, and various outbuildings that were not recorded in detail on the date of visit. These include a roofed range 25m SW of the cottage and a building between the two that has been reduced to footings and is now completely overgrown. A ruinous limekiln (NJ 06589 19775) is situated 45m SE of the cottage, built into the top of the face of a steep, S-facing terrace. The pot measures about 2m across internally and its stone face stands 1.2m in height on the N; the S side of the kiln has collapsed.
As depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Inverness-shire 1874, sheet XLVIA), Lynbeg comprised the cottage, a U-shaped range immediately SW, with two other buildings beyond. By the end of the 19th century, the U-shaped range had lost its two projecting wings and one of the buildings to the SW had become unroofed (1902, sheet XLVIA). The kiln is not depicted on either map.
