Full Description

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; within the un-thinned area of the plantation there is a scattered of large stones which may form a rectangular structure. A small piece of white pottery was found lying on the surface. This appears to be the remains of the roofed long house, small building and associated enclosures depicted on the 1st Edition Survey map of 1842-83. <1>
