Archaeology Notes

NH80NW 47 830 069.

Aerial photography (RCAHMSAP 1995) has recorded the remains of a township and enclosures at the foot of a hillside 500m NE of Kincraig Farm. These structures are not depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Inverness-shire 1874, sheets lxxiii) but are recorded as four unroofed buildings and a central enclosure on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1995). At least one further unroofed building, and a possible circular enclosure at NH 8311 0698, are visible on the air photographs. A series of farmsteads, buildings, field banks and an area of rig and furrow cultivation have been recorded immediately to the E and S (NH80NW 13 and NH80NW 43 ).

Information from RCAHMS (KB) 5 May 1999
