Full Description

NC21SE 17 253 143.

Building footing. Abandoned 18th/19th century.
Visited by OS (JM) 14 August 1980.

Visited by the Assynt's Hidden Lives project in December 2009. Situated on a plateau beneath a rocky outcrop, north of River Ledbeg, is an uneven stone rubble footing of a two-compartment building, aligned E/W, with the smaller compartment to the east. Both compartments have an entrance to the south and appear to be built of rounded, gathered boulders. The walls are 0.75m wide and up to 0.4m but quite uneven. <1>
