Archaeology Notes

NH36SW 15 3000 6093

The low turf-covered footings of a subrectangular building, lying on a small level area of well-drained ground at the W end of a low ridge, were recorded during a pre-afforestation survey by Headland Archaeology (NMRS MS 899/83, no.1). The building measures 5.5m from E to W by 2.5m and the W end is butted up against a rock face.

NH 310 615 (centre) A short-notice survey was undertaken of 182ha of land S of Grudie at the W end of Loch Luichart, Strath Bran. There were no previously recorded features of archaeological interest within the survey area, but it lies immediately adjacent to an area recently surveyed which contains buildings and enclosures (NMRS sites NH36SW 10, NH36SW 11, NH36SW 12, NH36SW 13 ). Two sites were identified: a single turf shieling hut (NH 3000 6093; NMRS NH36SW 15) of unknown date, and a group of buildings and enclosures (NH 311 611; NMRS NH36SW 14), mapped by the OS in 1875 as a sheep fank.
