NMRS Report: (14/09/2005)
NM76SE 29 78 61

A desk-based assessment and walkover survey of part of the in-by land of the former township of Ranachanstrone were carried out in November 2004. The predominantly turf dykes reflect the field pattern as depicted on Bald's estate plan of 1807. The pre-1804 road has now been traced from the Parliamentary bridge across the Allt a' Mhuilinn at NM 7895 6130 to just N of Salen. The following sites have been recorded, but the survey is ongoing.
