Full Description


These sites were recorded by NOSAS in 2008/9 as part of an archaeological survey of outer Loch Hourn.

Site 1530. On the W side of the Sandaig River in a sheltered position under low cliffs is a substantial building of double faced, drystone construction. It measures c.16m NW-SE x 4m NE-SW internally, with walls standing to c.1m high. It has square corners inside and out, as well as slightly staggered entrances in both long walls, which lie towards the NW end of the building. Like Sites 1531 and 1532, it was overgrown with bracken and brambles in 2008. Sites 1530-2 form a discreet farmstead, none of which have been recorded on the OS map. <1>

Note; Site not visible on Aps so location approximate. (T Blackie 27/6/18)
