NG 4667 4352 On the south-east bank of the Lon na h-Atha and 40 metres up stream from a spectacular waterfall are the well preserved ruins of two shielings.
The shieling closest to the river consists of a 4.00 metre diameter stone cell with a smaller 2.50 metre diameter stone cell attached to its west side. There are no visible entrance into either cell.
About 10.00 metres to the south-east of the above is a less well preserved single cell structure which measures 5.00 metres in diameter over very tumbled stone and turf walls. A possible entrance lies on the north-east (downhill) side of the shieling. A path leads from this site, to the only possible crossing of the river.
Martin Wildgoose, December 1998.
