Archaeology Notes

NJ02NE 64 NJ 08652 26152

This farmstead, which is situated in rough pasture 380m E of Burnside farmsteading, comprises two rectangular buildings and two enclosures, a pair of each respectively standing on the NE and SW banks of the Resmuden Burn. The building on the SW bank of the burn (NJ 08600 26138) measures 11.2m from NW to SE by 5.5m transversely over grass-grown wall-footings 0.2m in height, and there is an entrance in the NW end. The building on the NE bank (NJ 08652 26152) measures 9.4m from NW to SE by 4.7m transversely over walls reduced to grass-grown footings 0.3m in height. There are two possible entrances in the SW side. Both buildings lies immediately SE of what are probably sheepfolds.

The farmstead appears to have been abandoned before the middle of the 19th century and it is not depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Elginshire 1874, sheet XXXIII).
