Full Description

NN69NE 6.01 6878 9956

This limekiln has been levelled into the leading edge of a terrace on the N side of the track along Glenbanchor and lies to the W of the township head-dyke (see NN 69NE 6.01). The bowl measures 2.5m in diameter within a facing of boulders by 0.7m in depth, with the flue on the SW. It is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Inverness-shire 1872, ci) as a circle with a central dot and annotated Limekiln.
On the knoll just to the N of the limekiln there is a pit of unknown function which measures about 3m in diameter, with some upcast.
