Full Description

Allt Chadha Mhor

This is the distinctive steep pass, starting just above the Kinloch Hourn policies, through which the path to Arnisdale goes. Only one site was recorded by NOSAS in 2002 as part of an archaeological survey of Inner Loch Hourn. The area was not a part of the main study area.

Site 68 Building; Sits in a prominent position some 200m outwith the policies. A distinctive sub rectangular building of dry stone construction, with walls remaining in good condition to a max height of 1.2m. Approx 6m long by 4.5m wide o/a. Commands a clear view from the doorway to the east. A short scramble up behind the building affords a clear view down the full length of the Inner Loch, and the pass to Arnisdale. A possible look-out. This is an isolated building with no other associated sites. <1>
