What may be a plantation bank, which is depicted on 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Sutherland 1879-81, sheet cxi), was visited during the course of forestry survey by Headland Archaeology (NMRS MS 899/25, no.16). The plantation bank survives as a substantial earth and stone bank and forms eastern extension of a series of banked enclosures to W. The bank generally follows the contour except at E end where it turns S to head of the Allt an Fhuarain and serves as a property boundary.

NH 66 90 (centre) A short-notice forestry survey was undertaken by Headland Archaeology Ltd over roughly 7.5sq km of land to the W of Spinningdale on the northern shore of the Dornoch Firth. A total of 28 features or groups of features of archaeological interest were recorded, 19 of which had previously been noted. The majority are post-medieval settlement sites (buildings, farmsteads and settlement sites) recorded first by the OS in 1874.
