The fish ladder was identified in the 1998 DBA and survey by the National Trust of Scotland.
(INVG024) This fish ladder was presumably constructed in the 20th century (based purely on the basis that it is constructed of concrete). It has a concrete basal leap. A mortared stone dyke edge and a number of low concrete and/or stone leaps to enable the fish to enter the burn from Loch nan Dailthean. It was considered to be in stable condition with a photographs taken once every five years recommended. <1>
