Archaeology Notes

ND02NE 3 0862 2972

Galleried Dwelling, Braemore: At Achinavish Croft, about a mile down the Berriedale Water from Braemore Lodge, and some 80 yds back from the N bank of the river, are the remains of what has probably been a galleried structure. A number of upright stones remain, which appear to have formed the supporting pillars of a gallery in a circular construction, 44 by 37ft in overall diameter.

RCAHMS 1911, visited 1910.

No trace of this feature was found during field investigation.

Visited by OS (N K B), 21 March 1968.
