Crossing Strath Mor on an E-W alignment from approximately the 150m contour on the W flank of Beinn na Cro to the 150m contour on the E flank of Belig is a well preserved boundary dyke. Where the dyke crosses the wet ground on the floor of the Strath it is constructed of turf with a vertical stone face to the N side. On the flanks of the mountain it is constructed entirely of stone. The dyke survives to an average 1.5m in height on a 2.0m base.
