"Caithness Field Party article, JOG 1977 This is the "Lawn". so painstakingly cleared of rocks and rubble by the ex tenants, for James Horne. It was not originally within the bounds of Ausdale Farm but those who looked at the dyke enclosing the lawn would have seen that it incorporated the cottagers' bothys in the construction, effectively forcing the tenants further up the waste hill and further towards Badbea".
