A woodland enclosure wall was recorded here during a field survey of part of the Ardnamurchan Estate on the N shore of Loch Sunart, North Argyll. It was well-built and constructed of coursed masonry. the wall has a pronounced batter, tapering from a width of 0.85m at the base to 0.6m at the top. Some large stones were encorporated into the wall and stones laid transversly across the top act as coping. Most of the wall survives to full height, albeit with gaps in several places. The wall appears to have originally enclosed an area of around 300m and was built to protect a new woodland plantation.
