This farmstead was noted in a DBA and walkover survey by J Wood in 2004 for the Highland Wildlife Park. It was said to include three post-medieval buildings, an enclosing stone dyke, and several cairns. The farmstead may have been built on a former cultivated hill field or achadh that could date from the 14th through 17th centuries.
