Archaeology Notes

NH98NW 7 9304 8709.

(NH 9304 8709) Roman camp (R) (Site of)

OS 6" map, Ross-shire, 2nd ed., (1907)

The Rev Grant, minister of Boharn (1822) described, near Port a' Chaistell, "a beautiful square fortification of about 100 paces of a side," considered by Crawford (1949) to be probably that indicated on OS 6" map, as the site of a Roman Camp. It had apparently been defaced by 1872 (ONB 1872) during land reclamation, but Crawford thinks there may be some traces of it still visible. He had not, however, visited the site.

Grant 1822; Name Book 1872; O G S Crawford 1949.

No trace.

Visited by OS (A A) 19 September 1972.
