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.

930 Enclosure - NH 26580 51331 (centre) The southmost and larger of the two obvious enclosures. It measures 130m x 50m and has surrounding turf and stone banks to 0.5m in height and 1m thickness. A cluster of large angular boulders some 1.5 - 2m in size at NH 26580 51313 seem to have no form or significance; it may have been a single larger boulder. <1>
