Type and Period (1)
- FARMSTEAD (18th Century to 19th Century - 1701 AD? to 1875 AD)
- None recorded
A farmstead is depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map c.1875 apparently consisting of a house and an L-shaped arrangement of farm buildings. <1>
Most of the buildings have now been demolished. Photographs of the westernmost building of the L-shaped range were submitted to the HER in connection with a planning application for a replacement dwelling. The building has certainly been used as a dwelling at some time but it is not clear whether this was its original function. <2>
Corslet — Probably Crois-leathad, cross-slope ; it is by the road just by Rosemarkie, and may commemorate the site of one of the sculptured crosses. <3>
