Accessing Scotland's Past Project

The ruins of a rectangular building have been identified in coniferous woodland at Culantuim, on the north-west bank of Allt na Fanich, near Tom a'Lienam

The 1st edition of the Ordnance Survey 6-inch map of Banffshire, surveyed in 1872, shows that at that time Culantuim consisted of four rectangular buildings, all roofed, and presumably occupied. On the 1972 1:10000 map showing this same area, only two of these structures were still roofed.
