Full Description

Curin: Possible Still Bothy (285)- NH 38667 55723. At the west end of a small loch tucked away in the hills above and between Scatwell and Curin, this possible still bothy was surveyed by NOSAS in 2007 as part of the Scotland's Rural Past Projec. This is a sheltered situation at the foot of a steep NE facing slope. The stone footings of the rectangular building are on a N-S axis and measure 4m x 3m internally. The rear/west wall is recessed into the slope and there is a section of drystone wall upstanding to 1.1m height and 1.5m width at the south end of this wall. The remaining footings are composed of largish blocks, single course in height, which are heavily bracken covered. There may be an entrance at the N end of the east wall and a scooped recess outside the north wall may be of some significance. There is a small stream immediatelyadjacent to the south. <1>
