Full Description

NM39SE 2 3930 9274

Two heavily robbed buildings are situated midway between Dibidil bothy and the old sheepfold to the NNW; both measure about 6.6m by 3.2m over wall-footings 1.3m thick. The buildings probably form at least a part of the pre-clearance settlement of Dibidil, although the maps of Langlands and Thomson depict that settlement on the N side of Dibidil River, where no remains are now visible.
