Visited by OS (N K B) 23 June 1980.
Surveyed by the Assynt's Hidden Lives project in November 2009. Recorded as in a mostly ruinous condition. Identified as a series of turf covered banks forming an enclosure adjacent to Loch Borralan are located on a small promontory. Dimensions average 11m by 6m, aligned E/W. No obvious function of these banks could be determined, nor is their any indication of probable date. <2>
