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.

Bloomery. In front of the building 34 there is a roughly semi-circular grassy platform, measuring roughly 7m x 5m, with a grassy apron in which an abundance of iron slag was found; it is possible that this is the site of a bloomery and that the building is that of a smithy. <1>
