Full Description

Corn-drying kiln.
M Macdonald 1995. <1>

The area known as the Aird Peninsula, Shieldaig was surveyed by Anne McInnes in .

This area has 6 buildings situated on a terrace above the shoreline (see MHG60439). It is heavily overgrown with bracken so there may be more buildings submerged in the growth. There is evidence of enclosure walls. Built in to the slope above the buildings is a small corn drying kiln with flue visible. Only one building had a visible fireplace. There was port visible on the shingle beach. The buildings are shown as roofed on the 1st OS maps. <2>
