Full Description

Creag Dubh

Farmstead, buildings and Enclosure/Possible sheepfold (1002 – 1005) - NH 2796 5176 About 1km to the SSW of the farm at Glenmeinich and on the east side of the river, these structures are at the NE end of a grassy fertile area and were recorded by NOSAS in 2007 as part of the Scotland's Rural Past Project. There are considerable marshy stretches in the vicinity.

1002 Building - NH 27976 51738 A rectangular building aligned NE-SW with rounded corners; this has internal dimensions of 4.5 x 2m. The heather covered stone footings are more obvious at the SW end where they are 0.4m in height and have a spread of 1m. At the NE end the footings are 0.3m height and 0.8m spread. The central section of the long walls is not extant, possibly robbed to make an animal pen from the SW part of the building.

1003 Possible Building - NH 27961 51747 A few metres to the SW of 1002 this rectangular structure is aligned ENE-WSW and has internal dimensions of c3.5 x 2m. The turf footings are obvious at the W end where they are 0.4m in height and have a spread of 1m but at the E end they are much less distinct. <1>
