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 24. The stone footings of a small rectangular building on WNW-ESE alignment measuring 8m x 2m internally have been largely robbed and are generally 0.3m high and 0.8m thick. The building has rounded external ends and a curving front/south wall. Internally there were squared corners at the west end but it was impossible to discern the form of the corners at the east end. There were opposing entrances roughly 0.8m in width in the centres of both the north and the south walls. <1>
