Statement of Scheduling

Cultural Significance

The monument's archaeological significance can be expressed as follows:

Intrinsic characteristics: The monument is a well-preserved, archaeological site. It is unexcavated and therefore has the potential to provide high quality archaeological evidence of the use, construction and abandonment of the buildings.

Contextual characteristics: The site is a good example of a type known throughout Scotland but which has been the subject of relatively little archaeological research to date. It forms part of the wider historic landscape of the late medieval and pre-Improvement rural communities in the Strathdon area and may represent the remains of a shieling site used by the inhabitants of a nearby deserted township. It therefore has the potential to illuminate the practice of transhumance in the medieval and later rural communities.

Associative characteristics: The monument is the product of pre-Improvement agricultural and transhumance practices and demonstrates the settlement and economy of Scotland's rural population during the later medieval and post-medieval period. Sites such as this are increasingly rare monuments to a way of life and a once much larger rural population swept away by the 18th- and early 19th-century Clearances.

National Importance: The monument is of national importance because it has an inherent potential to make a significant addition to the understanding of the past, in particular the function and construction of rural vernacular architecture, settlement and economy of later medieval and post-medieval Strathdon. Its relatively good preservation enhances this potential. The loss of this example would affect our ability to understand the later medieval and post-medieval period of rural pre-Improvement Scotland, which preserves tangible evidence of the way of life prior to the age of agricultural improvement.
