Doocot/Dovecot, Boarhills
The partially collapsed roof on this Doocot or Dovecot shows the roosting boxes and the construction fairly well. Doocots where normally placed on the edge of your land and the pigeons encouraged to eat your neighbour's corn, of course he did the same. The pigeons entered and left via small holes in the roofed area and provided fresh meat during the winter months.
