Full Description

NN 82652 96093
A rectangular building in a small ravine 800m to the SE of the township of Tom Fhada. It lies on a NE/SW axis close to a small stream and is quite secluded. Internal measurements 6m x 2.5m. Walls quite substantial but roughly constructed, standing to 1m at north end but generally 0.5m and are 0.5m in width. Entrances at SW end and in the north end of the SE wall. NW wall built into slope. May be an "illicit" still.

Two buildings, to the W of the Allt Mor, were noted by J Wordsworth during a pre-afforestation survey (NMRS MS 961/2). The S building lies in a narrow gully at NN 8275 9564, and measures 6m by 4m. The walls are 0.5m thick and stand up to 1m in height. There are entrances in both the S and E.
The N building lies on the W bank of the Allt Mor at NN 8277 9569. The E wall of the structure has been eroded by the river.
