Information from Ann Wakeling, 8/12/99
The cut was noted in a 1995 DBA by J Wood in advance of a woodland creation scheme. It was noted to be from the 18th or 19th century and is included on the 1858 Seafield map. <1>
The cut was noted in a 2007 DBA and walkover survey by C Dagg in advance of a woodland creation scheme. It appeared to be an abandoned attempt to divert the water flowing out of Loch a’ Gharbh-choire into the Allt Clais an Eich to the north and may have been abandoned after a major landslide. A probable subsequent cut returned the water to the Caochan a’Bhric. The cut itself was just under 100m in length. <2>
