Archaeology Notes

NC80NE 43.03 89586 05339

This impressive L-shaped plan steading was completely rebuilt in 1866 and has later additions. It is built into a slope and one limb is of three storeys, with cart sheds on the ground floor and above these a byre with loft and a two-storeyed steam-powered threshing barn. All machinery has been removed from the barn and the boiler chimney demolished. There are three covered cattle courts. A detached dung house is to the N of the byre and is connected by a walkway. Also in the complex is a row of farmworkers' cottages, pigstyes and a number of detached buildings including a dairy, an open-sided steel-framed Dutch hay barn and, at greater distance and to the S, a laundry (NC 89659 05311). Clynelish House is located to the SSE (NC 89662 05256). The farmstead and associated buildings were mostly in good condition and were still in use as part of a mixed farm when visited (1994).

Visited by RCAHMS (GJD), February 1994; see NMRS MS 744/95.
