Full Description

A sheepfold shown on the 1st Edition OS map on Hollandmey Moss near Canisbay, Caithness (Caithness 1877, sheet vii).

This site was visited by SUAT in 2004 during a walkover survey in advance of a proposed windfarm development. The site lay in an area of rough pasture that had been ploughed for forestry and planted with seedlings or saplings. The feature could not be located. <1>

The feature is, however, visible on vertical aerial photographs taken in 1999-2001 and later.
