Full Description

NG80NW 8.01 8332 0751.

The house at Li has been built on the footings of an earlier building, which, together with one to the S, is shown as unoccupied on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (1st edition of the Ordnance Survey map, Inverness-shire, sheet 77, 1876). The first building, which is now represented by a plinth of grounders exposed within the drainage-trench on the W and S sides of the present house, measured 12.8m from NNW to SSE by 5.8m transversely overall. Two fragments of a rotary quern are preserved to the front of the house. The second building (NG 8333 0749), now rebuilt and in use as a bothy, measured 7.3m from N to S by 4.9m transversely overall; 14m to the S there are traces of what may be a stance. Some 17m to the E of the NE corner of the present house, there are the remains of a rectangular building measuring 11m from NNW to SSE by about 5.9m transversely over turf-covered stone wall-footings 0.7m in thickness.
