Full Description

This the main building is just 1.5m to the north of 56 and on the same alignment. It measures c6.5m x 3.2m internally. The remains of the dry-stone walls are 0.6m in height and 0.7m thick, but the west gable which appears to be largely intact is 1.4m high and the east gable is 0.8m high. There is an entrance, 0.6m width, in the centre of the south wall.
Another possible building to the east may be an outshut and there is evidence of a further building in the form of a well-built drystone "end" wall. It is 0.7m high, with 1m spread and is 4m in length. In between this and 57 there is a slight rectangular depression, c 6m x 3m with a barely discernable low turf wall to the north. The extent of the building is difficult to make out because of forest ploughing and planted trees. <1>
