Full Description

A desk-based assessment and walkover survey of Cuil, on the shore of Loch Linnhe, Lochaber, was carried out in 2010 by N Malcolm for RCAHMS' 'Scotland's Rural Past Project'. This farmhouse was photographed and measure. It has obviously been added to and altered since it was originally built; when this was is uncertain but probably about 1850 although there may have been an earlier house on the site as some of the stonework in the walls looks quite old. The name Greenfield first appears in the 1871 census but the same tenant was living at North Cuil 20 years before. It has three roof lines but which part came first is uncertain. It contained a dairy at its western corner which was entered by a separate external door. There was also a front door to which a porch had been added at some time and a back door. A flat-roofed extension was added in the 1970s. <1> <2>
