Full Description

Camas Drollaman. This southern part of the peninsula is remote by land though accessible by sea at the large bay from which the area takes its name. Only two substantial ruins were noted and the main cultivation areas to the north east of the area are not far from Tòrr a’Bheithe. It was surveyed in 2013 by Rough Bounds Archaeology et al.

Site 20. Very substantial ruin c. 4 x 10 mtrs - inner and outer walls of large stones filled with smaller stones. Evidence of window(s) on long south west facing side. Entrance on the short SE side. Built against SW facing hillside with ground sloping away to SW and a panoramic view of the whole of Coire Camas Drollaman to the loch Camas Drollaman. Small area in NE corner walled off with low wall – possible twinning pen or storage. Similar often observed in similar size buildings elsewhere in Moidart. A small tumble ruin was noted a few metres to SE of the main structure – possible outbuilding /storage/byre. <1>

NGR adjusted based on 2012 aerial photographs. <2>
