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 23. This rectangular building is recessed into the slope within a small hollow, possibly a watercourse, and is aligned N-S. It measures approx. 10m x 3m internally. The stone walls are constructed of very large rough boulders, some over 1m in diameter, and are generally up to 0.5m height and coursed in the west wall; a large recessed boulder in the north wall has an internal height of 1m and the external S wall is up to 0.8m in height. A possible entrance may be discerned in the SE corner. A dry water course running down the east side of the building possibly originates after the time of the building. <1>
