A desk-based assessment and archaeological survey conducted at the ruins of a post-medieval settlement to the north of Kylerhea on the Isle of Skye. The dispersed settlement consists of twenty-five buildings in four groups across open ground and within forest plantation on the southeast facing slopes above the Kyle Rhea. The buildings comprise stone structures and associated enclosures, remnants of boundary walls and areas of rig and furrow cultivation. Several outlying sites, including possible shielings and a possible hut circle were recorded beyond the area of main settlement. An additional site containing ruinous buildings was also identified outside of the survey area. It was not recovered due to time limitations. <1>
