Archaeology Notes

NJ53SW 83 5360 3002

Nothing is now visible of this cottage on a wide grass verge on the N side of the junction of the B9002 public road and the farm track that leads to Leith Hall Home Farm (NJ53SW 24). A scattered spread of rubble, which is situated immediately NE of where the cottage stood, may be no more than field-cleared stones.

The cottage is depicted as roofed on both the 1st and 2nd editions of the OS 6-inch map (Aberdeenshire, 1870, sheet xliii and 1901, sheet xliii.NW respectively).

Visited by RCAHMS (JRS), 7 November 2000.
