Full Description

Centred 735 502.

Achtidonile - Possibly a settlement before 1700. The name occurs in pre-18th century deeds, the only later reference being a pencil note on the mounted copy of Achranaich plan 1815, which places Achtidonile at c. NM 735 502, where there is a cairn, which may be the result of field clearance.
