Farmstead south-west of Blackwool Law (Rochester and Byrness)
The remains of a building, 20m long by 6m wide, lie on the hillslope above Blackwool Law. They were originally described as a medieval shieling with field clearance cairns nearby, but more recently as a 17th or 18th century farmstead. Two small pens lie nearby and there are low walls and banks all around.
