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.
929 Enclosure - NH 26546 51420 The north most of two obvious enclosures, this oval enclosure is surrounded by irregular banks of turf and stone generally 0,5m in height and with a spread of 1m. It is on a raised area and measures roughly 80m x 50m. It is generally grassy but with large patches of bracken, a small stream runs down each of the long sides. <1>
