A kiln, set into a natural slope in the saddle between Creag na h-Iolaire and an unnamed hill to the NE, was noted by J Wordsworth during a pre-afforestation survey. The kiln bowl measures 2.5m in diameter and is set within walls almost 1m thick and 1.5m high. It is possibly an old limekiln as there is no evidence of intense burning. An irregular hollow to the NW may be a quarry.
