Full Description

A walkover survey at Cul Beag/ Allt na Crionaiche was carried out by NOSAS members in Aug 2015. The remains of two farmsteads and associated enclosures are 3 kms west of Aultgowrie Bridge on the south facing slope above the Allt Goibhre at an altitude of 230m.

1. Farmstead; stone footings of a rectangular building aligned SW-NE within the main enclosure. The building measures 8mx2m internally and the walls, with squared corners, are double faced, generally 0.5m thick (but 1m at SW end) and of height 0.5m – 0.8m. Two compartments are indicated
