Information from RCAHMS (SAH) 8 September 1995

Surveyed by the Assynt's Hidden Lives project in December 2009. The township of Tigh Fiodha has developed into a modern settlement. A number of large drystone walls are apparent running across the heather and bracken moorland to the east of the township but these would appear to be no older than 19th century. <1>
