NH25 1 CARNOCH

NH/252507

This oval probable broch or 'galleried dun' in Urray, Ross and Cromarty, consists of a "walled oval enclosure on a glacial mound, measuring some 20m E-W by 16m N-S. The wall is about 4m thick and, thickening to the N where there are traces of side chambers on either side of the entrance. It has been much jumbled by 19th century excavations; the finds are locally believed to have been sent to the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland but the latter have (sic) been unable to trace them" [1].
