Full Description

Glenmeinich SW, Invermeinie
Farmstead (1029 – 1033) centred on NH 28125 52187 Situated on a terrace on the north side of the river 500m to the SW of the main habitation of Glenmeinich and was recorded by NOSAS in 2007 as part of the Scotland's Rural Past Project. At this point there are broad flat haughs on the valley floor. There is a linear grassy strip close to the river and much poorer marshy and heathery ground on a raised river terrace. The farmstead is situated on a raised knoll on the river terrace, the earth bank a few metres to its east runs along the edge of the river terrace.

1029 Farmstead - NH 28125 52187 A rectangular building on a NE-SW alignment measures 22m x 3m internally with squared corners. The low turf and stone footings are 0.3m in height and have spread of 1m. There are 3 compartments, the main central one is 10m x 3m, the east one is 9m x 3m and the west outshot which is set back is 3m x 2m. There is no evidence of an entrance. Moss, grass and heather cover.

1030 Building - NH 28130 52170 A few metres to the west of 1029 and at a lower level this structure is set into the slope of the knoll. It is on the same alignment and measures 4m x 3m internally. The NE part is recessed into the bank with a height of 1m and the SW part appears as a depressed area 0.5m deep, but there is evidence of stonework around the edge. It is wet and reedy. <1>
