Archaeology Notes

NF87NE 11 8617 7542.

(NF 8617 7542) Castle (NR) (Site of)

OS 6"map, Inverness-shire, 2nd ed., (1904)

The site marked by the OS, 200 yards to the west of An Caisteal, Valliquie, 'is evidently in error as it shows no sign of former occupation, consisting merely of rock covered by a scanty growth of turf'.

E Beveridge 1911.

There are no traces of any certain structures visible in this area of amorphous mounds and grass-covered banks. A few circular features can be traced: some of them appear as grass-covered, stony banks but they are either old field walls, stone clearance heaps, or the remains of small structures. The area around the site has been extensively cultivated. Visited by OS (R B) 30 June 1965.
