Archaeology Notes

NC80NE 27 c. 89 06

There is a mansion or tower at Clyn.

W Macfarlane 1906-8.

No trace of a mansion or tower was found. The owner of the old manse (NC 8947 0602), Mr Sadler, states that the building dates back to 1776. There is nothing to connect the manse with the mansion; the former is a modern-looking building.

Visited by OS (E G C), 18 July 1961.
