An earlier township now comprising several poorly preserved foundations surrounds the one shown on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Sutherland 1878, sheet lxx). These were identified by a walkover survey by Historic Assynt in 2010. One of the buildings was subjected to a trial excavation in 2013 (See MHG50895).<1>
