A township comprising five unroofed buildings, an enclosure and a head-dyke is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Inverness-shire 1873, sheet lxxxviii). Four unroofed buildings, an enclosure and some lengths of boundary wall are shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1994).
Information from RCAHMS (SAH) 17 July 1996

NH 832 009 Widening of commercial forestry access necessitated the destruction of a dyke close to a depopulation site. Though in a ruinous state, sections through the dyke suggested a construction of turf and stone, with a narrow, paved path on the side of the dyke facing away from the settlement. Two pieces of glazed ceramic underlying the tumble on the settlement side of the dyke give a late 18th century date. A report has been deposited in the Highland SMR.
