Well at Inverlaidnan
Type and Period (1)
- WELL (Post Medieval - 1560 AD? to 1900 AD?)
- None recorded
A project to survey and record archaeological features at Inverlaidnan and Sluggan (originally named Inchluin) was undertaken by NOSAS members in 2018.
Site 81. Well. The site of the western of two wells annotated on the 1771 estate plan of Inverlaidnan is on the gentle SE-facing slope at the foot of a glacial terrace approx. 2.5m NW of a post-and-wire fence which separates the slope from a field of improved pasture; it comprises a 3m diameter area of scattered stones, old rusty fencing and reeds. There is an area of raised turf on the NW side, and large scattered stones on the SE side. It is hard to establish any form to these scattered stones; apart from them there is no physical remains of any well structure. <1>
