Archaeology Notes

NH87NE 34.01 85725 77113

Tullich; 'A farm house with offices situated about a 1/2 mile from Fearn'

Name Book 1872

This farmsteading is situated on the N side of a track that leads through the military camp at Loans of Tullich and adjacent to a later farmhouse.

Built of stone and now roofed with corrugated iron, it has a small doocot built on to the gable-end of the NE wing. The doocot is dated 1889, possibly having been added later than the original construction of the steading.

Evidence that the steading has been re-used, probably during the Second World War, was observed within the structure. Its location within the military camp makes it highly likely that the structure was possibly used for administration or officers quarters, the present day population in the area could shed no light on the wartime occupants. The internal arrangement of the rooms has been drastically altered and there is extensive use of wooden-framed wall divisions and hardboard walls. In the NE wing a standard war period fireplace has been installed.

The farm of Tullich is depicted roofed on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Ross & Cromarty) 1881, sheet XLII and is shown with the farmhouse immediately to the S of the steading, not to the W as it is today.
