Full Description

A small farmstead comprising three buildings beside an old quarry is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Caithness 1877, sheet vii) and labelled 'Hollandmey'. On the 2nd edition only part of the larger building is shown as roofed and the name had been transferred to the farm buildings to the south (see MHG37157).

This site was visited by SUAT in 2004 in advance of a proposed windfarm development. No trace was seen of the buildings although the site of the former quarry was evident as a churned up area of peat and stones. <1>
