Extensive rig cultivation was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It was visible on the S side of Eilean nan Gall and covered part of the interior of this terrace. There was a circular depression in the centre of Eilean nan Gall that may have been be the remains of a roundhouse. <2>
