Full Description

Field System. Grass cover. Elevation: 152m (500') OD. NC 248 125. <1>

Visited by the Assynt's Hidden Lives project in December 2009. Situated in heather moorland, enclosed by two earthen banks are areas of improved ground. The most westerly enclosure is sub-rectangular with its SW end truncated by the road. It is 100m long, aligned NNE-SSW, with a subdivision running N/S across its eastern side. The eastern enclosure is L-shaped, 50m long, aligned NE/SW with a subdivision running N/S through its W side. Both enclosures have overgrown earthen banks which are 2m wide and up to 1m high. There are no obvious entrances to either enclosure although there are a number of eroded/damaged areas on both. <2>
