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. Buildings 26, 28, 29, 31 and 32 are aligned along the upper part of the township forming a “street”.
Building 28. Rectangular building aligned south-east/north-west with ill-defined square corners. The internal measurement is approx. 7m x 2m. The western gable stands to 0.8m and the south wall is little more than footings and curves in to meet the eastern gable which abuts building 29. There are two doorways opposite one another in the north and south walls; both are 0.5m wide and positioned approximately centrally. The existence of two opposing doorways suggests that this building was used as a barn. Between buildings 26 & 28 is a dry stream bed. <1>
