Archaeology Notes

NH68SE 29 6650 8380

Three deserted cottages situated among enclosures in cleared ground 1.1km NW of Little Daan. One of the cottages shows evidence of two phases of clay-mortar construction with later lime-mortar pointing; the other two are of dry-stone construction.

RCAHMS 1979, visited September 1978.

One partially roofed, two roofed buildings and a two compartment enclosure are depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Ross-shire 1881, sheet xl). Three unroofed buildings and an incomplete enclosure are shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1992).

Information from RCAHMS (SAH), 13 June 1996.
