Full Description

Cairns (NAT) OS 6" map, (1959)

On a green haugh on the left bank of the Allt Reidhe Mhoir, about half a mile W of Acharaskill, are some half dozen small stony mounds each about 16ft in diameter. The haugh appears to have been under cultivation, and while some of the mounds may be the ruins of bothies, others are possibly merely heaps of stones gathered off the cultivated land.
RCAHMS 1911, visited 1910.

Modern stone clearance heaps contemporary with strip cultivation and the footings of a rectangular stone-walled building. Not an antiquity. Visited by OS (I S S) 21 April 1972.
