NG25NE 12 257 575.

There are at least seven buildings and an enclosure along a slight terrace on the slopes above Loch Bay, some 500m NW of Waternish House. Some time before the 1st edition of the Ordnance Survey map of 1880 (Island of Skye &c., Inverness-shire 1880, sheet ix) they have all been reduced by cultivation which appears to have removed earlier ridged cultivation, traces of which are still visible at the edges of the field.

12.01 NG 257 575 Buildings; Enclosure (848-854)
12.02 NG 256 576 Buildings (855-856)

Visited by RCAHMS (DCC) 21 November 1990.
