Full Description

Low footings are visible in an area of forestry where harvesting is currently taking place. The remains were reported by Tim Lucas of UPM Tilhill, and are described as a small square building (2 by 3m) of which only the lower sections of walls are visible, to approximately 40cm in height. The supplied grid reference is NH 568 425, and this appears to correspond with a larger building depicted on the current Ordnance Survey mapping. This building is shown as a roofed building, probably a crofthouse, on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map c.1871. <1>-<3>
