in 2008 a survey team of volunteers set up by Historic Assynt as part of the Scotland's Rural Past scheme was surveying the early modern farmstead of Eadar a Chalda and came across a feature at NC 24506 23740 which was tentatively identified as a possible severely robbed cairn.
As part of a concerted plan by Historic Assynt to return to and record a number of such previously noted features, the site was visited again on 1March 2013 and surface examination suggested that it was indeed a robbed cairn, originally constructed largely of river-worn quartzite stones, the source of which was probably the Allt a Calda Mor some 200m to the south . <1>
