Archaeology Notes

Some traces of the foundations of an old building still remain in the neighbourhood of Achormlarie (NH 697 945). This may have been a church served from Dornoch ministry as the names 'Achenecolais' (Church field) and 'Allt-an- t-Sagairt' (Priest's Burn) suggest.

C D Bentinck 1926.

No further information was found during field investigation. Enquiries at Achormlarie were unsuccessful.
