Information from RCAHMS (SAH) 8 January 1996

This site could not be located during a walkover survey carried out by Headland Archaeology in 2011 in advance of a proposed windfarm at Bad a' Cheo. However, it must be stated that Headland erroneously state that in comparison with the OS 1st Edition map, the site lay outside the proposed development boundary. <1>

The site was also mentioned in the additional information produced in association with the Bad A' Cheo Windfarm Environmental Statement. <2>
