Boath Doocot (dovecot) is one of the National Trust for Scotland's smallest properties - they call it one of their "little gems" - atop an ancient motte bordering Auldearn village. The attractive, 17th century building is unstaffed (with no interior access) but certainly not uninhabited; large numbers of pigeons clearly still call it home, except without the worry of having their eggs, droppings and fellow housemates plundered for food and fertiliser.

Anything else? The car park is a little way down an unsurfaced track (unsuitable for vehicles with low ground clearance) opposite the B9111 / B9101 junction. From here, the doocot is reached by a brief narrow path and flight of steps.
