Full Description

Coire Reidh
Sites identified during an archaeological survey of Loch Hourn by NOSAS in 2006.

Site 693. The fragmented and eroded remains of a c 70m length of stone and turf walling, partly free standing, partly retaining the edge of the north bank of the Allt Coire Reidh. The wall stands to 0.9m high in places. The burn has changed course considerably over time and the local topography suggests that the wall may have been part of a roughly ‘D’ shaped enclosure, similar to that found in Coire Mhàlagain, which has now been largely swept away by the burn. Noted during reconnaissance in Nov 2006. <1>
