with lazy beds and stone clearance.'
T C Welsh 1970. <1>

Visited by the Assynt's Hidden Lives project in December 2009. Nothing found around the previously cited NGR. However considerably further north and downhill towards the road, an earthern and stone bank was indentified running N/S downhill. This is the only trace of any farmstead in the area. The bank is 100m long by 0.8m high, and 0.75 wide at its base. <2>
