Full Description

NG56SW 7 centred 51 62.

On Skye .. There are several little stone houses built above ground, capable only of (housing) one person, and round in form ... One of them is to be seen at Culnknock. They are called Teynindruinich, ie. Druid's House (M Martin 1934).
These apparently refer to Beehive Shielings and it may be inferred that even in Martin's time they had been so long out of use that their original purpose had been forgotten. The word 'Druinich' really means artist or artificer (RCAHMS 1928).
M Martin 1934; RCAHMS 1928.

Not found.
Visited by OS (A S P) 28 April 1961.
