Eight archaeological sites were recorded in a desk-based and walkover survey at Socaich Burn, Ardtornish Estate, Morvern, Lochaber, Highland. One is a natural feature: a waterfall, Site 3, with historical associations and the rest are all pertaining to the pre-clearance agricultural landscape. The dyke and field, Sites 5 and 6, the structure, Site 7, and the shieling settlement, Site 8, were part of Achranich farm and are depicted on a plan of 1815. The track, Site 1, and possible shieling settlement, Site 2, were associated with Ardtornish Farm and the dyke, Site 4, was the boundary between the two estates.
