Archaeology Notes

NH64NW 37 608 460

NH 64/74 OS 608461 No. 103 Phopachy.

Outwith the arable field and buried under grass are the concrete foundations of a store-house. Adjacent and towards the east there are dislodged blocks of brick walling and footings of another building. At the west side an inlet has been dug, but the entrance is now blocked with beach shingle. Bones and probably guano were landed here during high tides. This haven may have become redun¬dant when John Cran, Kirkton Farm, built his manure factory at Bunchrew Railway Station in 1870.
