Accessing Scotland's Past

Aerial photographs taken in 1996 by the Aberdeenshire Archaeology Service have recorded the remains of a small enclosure and a building, each reduced to grass-covered footings. Both sets of remains lie in an area of rough grazing which overlooks the River Livet, situated about 650m south of Achdregnie steading. The aerial photographs also show traces of old fields and rig-and-furrow cultivation nearby.
