Archaeology Notes

NH 44/54 OS 542464 No. 8 Wester Lovat Farm.

There can be seen protruding from the river at low tide the round wooden piles of a wharf which was constructed, perhaps early last century, when the river was embanked further upstream, re-claiming the Carse of Lovat for cultivation. An estate map of 1800 reveals that there was a woodyard situated downstream at OS 543467 The township at the pier was known as Baile-chul.
