Full Description


Buildings, midden, pond, headwall and bridge (891 – 900) - centred on NH 2620 5035 were recorded by NOSAS in 2007 as part of the Scotland's Rural Past Project. Inverchoran Farm (see MHG50742) is on the west bank of the Allt Gleann Chorainn where the burn emerges from a narrow ravine. It is at the SE corner of a large cultivated area on the valley floor. The majority of the features identified were on the west bank of the burn above and to the south of the farm. The only features on the east bank were a turf and stone bank/a possible headwall (899) and the bridge abutments(900) There has been a good deal of activity at this site over the years and it is presumed that much of the archaeology will have been swept away.

896 Concrete tank/cistern - NH 26157 50242 On the hill to the S of the farm and close to the burn this square concrete water tank is 1.2 metres deep with walls 0.20 metre thick. The NE corner has a mortared stone extension containing a shaft with an inspection hatch (cover missing) at the top. <1>
