Full Description

A walkover survey at Cul Beag/ Allt na Crionaiche was carried out by NOSAS members in Aug 2015. The remains of two farmsteads and associated enclosures are 3 kms west of Aultgowrie Bridge on the south facing slope above the Allt Goibhre at an altitude of 230m.

13. Probable Still Bothy - at an altitude of 240m this rectangular structure is at the foot of a steep slope and on the west side of the burn being just 1 to 2m distant from it. The structure is on a NW-SE alignment, measures roughly 8m x 3m overall and is bounded on its east side by a moss covered stone edge. The structure comprises two parts; the NW part is a level mossy platform with evidence of stones/?paving underneath and the SE part is a small crudely built pen probably of more recent origin. This pen is circa 2m x1.5m overall with the internal area of just 1m x 0.5m; the north wall being slightly more substantial and 0.8m in height. <1>
