Archaeology Notes

NN92NW 7 9135 2849.

An old 'castle' about 60 yds. in circumference on a hill called Tom-nam-brach (antiquarian notes on Glenalmond circa 1783, MS no.126,

in Perth Museum) at the north-west corner of the alleged camp (NN92NW 3) (NN 9135 2849). Many of the stones were removed in 1783 to build the adjacent bridge just below, over the Almond. The name should probably read 'Tom-nam-broch', the hillock of the broch or fort.

O G S Crawford 1949

No trace of any structure could be found on the steep-sided hillock at NN 9135 2849. Its name could not be confirmed.

Visited by OS (RD) 22 December 1966
