Full Description

NN 87507 97658
At an altitude of 570m, on the north bank of the Allt Fhearnagan, there is raised grassy circular area, roughly 8m in diameter. Banked up at its lower/west side where there is some stonework evident, there is a flat central area which may possibly have supported a timber building 5m x 4m, there is a stone setting at the south edge which may have been an entrance. The whole of the corrie has rampant heather and there is no evidence of pasture land that would have supported summer grazing. Suggest this structure may have been connected with the sport of shooting. It is marked on 1st Edition OS map as an unroofed building.
