Full Description

A building at Shurrery.

An unroofed building was identified in LiDAR data gathered by AOC Archaeology in 2011 as part of the mitigation for the visual impact on the archaeological landscape associated with the proposed Baillie Hill windfarm, Caithness. A small, single compartment structure measuring approx 12m by 5m. <1>

On the OS 1st Edition 6" map the building is approximately twice as long, and faint indications of this can be seen in the LiDAR data. In addition a smaller, square, building immediately to the west of the current ruined building is visible on vertical APs and is also discernible in the LiDAR data [IS-L 17/06/2020].
