Full Description

A project of surveying and recording the archaeological sites within the grounds of Castle Leod was carried out by members of the North of Scotland Archaeological Society (NOSAS) in the winter of 2012-13.

Site 14. Building – a substantial L-shaped building which is rapidly falling into ruin. The main part to the west is roofless and has mortared stone walls to 2.5m height and a chimney still standing to 5m height. The eastern “leg”of the building has been levelled to the ground in its middle section and an outshot with curving corner has been added. The building is marked on the 1st Edition OS survey of 1873 and on the 2nd Edition OS survey of 1904. A small cottage has been constructed more recently at the south end of the building. <1>
