Archaeology Notes

NJ02SE 33 09257 20288.

This substantial rectangular building is situated adjacent to the S side of the 18th century military road (NJ02SE 7) with which it is probably contemporary. The building measures 14m from ENE to WSW by 5.3m transversely over walls reduced to stone footings 0.5m in height. The interior contains two compartments, a small one at the WSW end linked to the larger by a doorway at the N end of the shared partition. The entrance to the building is situated a little to the W of the centre of the SSE side, and it is furnished with a porch which is entered from the ENE.

The building is not depicted on either the 1st or 2nd edition of the OS 6-inch map (Inverness-shire 1874, sheet XLVIA; 1902, sheet XLVIA).
