Full Description

Glac An Tobhar
Site identified during an archaeological survey of Loch Hourn by NOSAS in 2006.

Site 854 Hut - a stone built structure, measuring 3m N-S x 1.5m internally, on an E facing slope. There is an abundance of tumbled stone, while an in situ boulder forms the N wall. The structure is recessed into the slope, where the crude stonework rises to 0.7m in height, and is built out at the front into an apron, c1.2m in height. A path winds southwards down the slope from the entrance. A probable fishers hut. <1>
