Visited by OS (JM) 14 August 1980.

Visited by the Assynt's Hidden Lives project in December 2009. Situated on a relatively flat area on the south side of the valley, south of River Ledbeg is an area of stone spread. This is potentially the remains of a building although virtually nothing remains. <1>
