Full Description

An archaeological survey of the township of Keppoch, Dundonnell, Ross-shire was undertaken by NOSAS members in April 2014. See MHG6300 for main township record.

Building 3. A rectangular building on a N-S alignment occupies the SE corner of enclosure 2. Building 3 measures 8m x 3m internally and is defined by large moss covered boulders generally 0.5m high although at its N end the footings reach 0.9m height and it has largely been robbed of its stone. The east wall curves (outwardly) and there is an entrance 1m in width at its centre. There could be two compartments to the building but internal tumble makes it difficult to discern an internal dividing wall. <1>
