Abstract:
The National Trust for Scotland commissioned Alder Archaeology Ltd to undertake a historic building recording and an archaeological excavation at a ruin known as 'The West Ruin' next to the Old Schoolhouse at Cottown, Perth and Kinross. The ruin was considered important because of its close proximity to the Schoolhouse, a surviving 18th century example of a house built with solid clay and straw walls on rubble foundations, a local vernacular building technique. The West Ruin was known to contain surviving clay and straw elements attached to a larger clay-bonded rubble house, but these building methods, now the roof had gone, meant that the remains were rapidly eroding away. The survey was carried out to provide a comprehensive record of the remains prior to the ruin being stabilised and partially re-built by the NTS to avoid further dilapidation. The first part of the project, the survey, was carried out over three days between the 19th and 21st of July 2010 in often wet weather conditions. The ruin was analysed in fine detail and plans and elevations were drawn at 1:20. The second part, the excavation, was carried out during the following week between the 26th and 28th of July 2010. The main aims of the excavation were to try to discover the former use of one of the rooms in the ruin and to discover the relationship of the West Ruin to the Schoolhouse.
