Small areas of grassland amidst heather; no shieling bothies located. (OSFI:NKB:1.9.80)

It consists of a small, rectangular structure 7m x 5m x up to 0.3m high, aligned N-S, set at the west end of a grassy knoll 29m x 14m, aligned E-W. The structure appears to have been turf-built; the location of the entrance is not apparent. <2>
