A farmstead, comprising one partially roofed building, one unroofed building and one enclosure, is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Sutherland 1879-81, cxi). It is not shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1971).
Information from RCAHMS (AKK) 22 November 1995.

This farmstead was visited during the course of a forestry survey by Headland Archaeology (NMRS MS 899/25, no.1). The buildings have been levelled with steel hawsers and other metal debris partially buried in the remains. The enclosure dyke survives as a turf-and-stone bank.
