MHG60872 - Township - Inverlaidnan
Township at Inverlaidnan
Type and Period (1)
- TOWNSHIP (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 14. This township is located on top of a knoll at an altitude of 350m within the enclosed lands of the Inverlaidnan estate. A ruined boundary wall is close by to the west and a track linking the Old House with the military road passes to the south of the township. The remains of several buildings and associated features appear as nebulous humps and bump in rough impoverished grassland. Three buildings (A G and L) are fairly obvious and 4 appear as platforms (B, C, D and J) with barely discernible evidence of footings; there are two possible kilns (H and M), 2 possible middens (E and F), a number of field clearance cairns Q and a feature identified as possible storage pits (K) (a possible wartime trench has also been suggested). The township is marked on the Roy map of c.1750 and on estate plans of 1771 and 1808. <1>
