- FARMSTEAD (Post Medieval - 1560 AD? to 1900 AD?)
- None recorded
In August 2015, a walkover survey was undertaken in Morangie Forest, Edderton by Anne Coombs on behalf of the Forestry Commission Scotland to identify and demarcate archaeological sites in advance of pre-thinning operations.
Farmstead; the buildings lie in an open area of grass informally planted with deciduous trees. The settlement consists of 2 buildings; a long building c.30m NNE-SSW by c.5m externally with walls c.1m wide and up to c.1.5m high, with 2 internal divisions and upstanding in places up to the gable. This building may have an outshot on the north side c.8m N-S or this may be a separate building abutting the building to the south. To the northwest, an unroofed structure appears to on the 1st Edition Survey map of 1842-83 and may be a small enclosure c.12m NW-SE by c.6m. This structure was not visible on this visit but the lowest levels may still survive below the long grass. The settlement is recorded as 1 or 2 roofed buildings from the time of the 1st Edition Survey up to and including the OS 1:2500 1937-61 maps. <1>
