Archaeology Notes

Site Management (5 October 2011)

Traditional stone built range of single storey steading buildings and cottages with arched openings to triangular court on the southern elevation.

The buildings appear on the 1st edition OS map, although the pend style access to the courtyard does not seem to be recorded, suggesting it was a later addition. Photographs of the site dating from 1975-6 in the RCAHMS archives show the buildings roofed with pantiles and in use.
