Unknown Ruins on Murdoch Head
Unknown Ruins on Murdoch Head
I'd originally come here to fill in a blank square, so I was a little surprised to find these remains on the very edge of the cliff at Murdoch Head. I was aware of there being the footings of an old smithy nearby, but I have no idea what this building once was, or how old it is. Although the type of mortar used would suggest 18th century or earlier.

As always, if anyone has any information, I would be most grateful.
