Full Description

A ?C19 farmstead at Leathad Beag, Caithness.

Remains of buildings, probably a farmstead, visible 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. However, the features were not identified in the initial data analysis and therefore are not record/listed in the project report. <1>

The buildings are shown in this location on the OS 1st Edition 6" map [IS-L 29/06/2020].

A building to the southwest may be associated (see MHG61860).
