Archaeology Notes

783 337.

(Area: NH 7833 337) Engineering operations from 1884-5 at the SE corner of Loch Moy, (where the Funtack issues from it) revealed an obstruction in the form of an accumulation of large stones mixed with clay. It is thought to be possibly the remains of a dam built c. 1410-20 by the clan Cummings, in an abortive attempt to drown the MacKintoshes who inhabited Castle Moy.
