OS 25" map (1914)

Dovecot, Renniehill. This dovecot lies within 50 yds of another on the property of Innergellie (50SE 2). It is 25 1/2 x 14 1/4ft externally, probably dates from the 17th century, and has been considerably renewed a century later. On the back wall, above the string course, is a circular gunloop about 6ins in diameter. The W skewput seems to bear a fragmentary date (16)25 and the E one the letters D.I.


As described by RCAHMS. Similar to NO50SE 2.

Visited by OS (WDJ) 30 August 1968
