Full Description

Allt Mhic Fannain

Buildings and enclosures (928 – 934) - centred on NH 2664 5130 This group of features is situated on a gentle SE facing slope of easier ground with the Allt Mhic Fannain to the north and were recorded by NOSAS in 2007 as part of the Scotland's Rural Past Project. It is one km to the NNE of Inverchoran, at an altitude of 200m. The ground is generally heathery and marshy here but the enclosures and one of the buildings are situated on well drained and improved land in the NW part of the area where the slope begins to steepen. Two of the buildings and a pit are on poorer slightly higher ground overlooking the River Meig.

928 Building - NH 26528 51480 Comprises the stone footings of a small rectangular structure on an E-W axis with the main compartment measuring 3.5m x 2m internally. It is recessed into the slope to the north where the rear wall is 1m in height. The walls of stone are generally 0.6m in height although the west wall is much more substantial, 1m in height and 2m thickness. An entrance 0.8m in width is seen at the east end of the south wall. There is a small outshot at the east end, c1.5m square. The whole is bracken covered. <1>
