Full Description

Linear Boundary Dyke.
Low, peat turf bank, with associated watery ditch on its N side, possibly acting as drainage at the rear and to the N of the derelict house of Feature 165 (below) at Breac-achadh. The bank is 1-2m wide and 0.4m high and trends uphill 286 degrees across a hummocky, grassy, lower area and heathery, upper area, to intersect with the modern plantation fence, 15m to the SW of its E corner, and downhill 093 degrees for 30m, where it peters out in a boggy area. <1>
