Srp Note (14 January 2011)

The former township of Glacour (Glaic Odhar) is located on the S side of the River Meig. Currently two roofed cottages lie within an extensive area of improved ground which is enclosed. The remains of the former township lie outside the enclosure area on marginal ground, forming two groups, one to the SE the other to the SW. A total of ten buildings (NOSAS site survey numbers 745,747-749,751,753- 757) an enclosure (750), a clapper bridge (746) and what appear to be slit trenches (752) dating from WW2.

Further details of these and other associated sites can be found in the Strathconon Phase 3 Report (page 49 – 53 & 51) produced by the North of Scotland Archaeology Society and appended to this record.
