There are at least seven shieling-huts situated on a series of terraces to the E of the confluence of the Allt na Beiste with the Suisgill Burn. A bank, partially depicted on the current edition of the OS 6" map (OS 1:10560 map 1963) encloses the terraces, on which faint traces of cultivation ridges can be seen. What may be two further huts are situated to the NW on either side of the Allt na Beiste.
