Full Description

A low indistinct turf dyke or bank runs ENE-WSW. This is presumably associated with the pre-improvement settlement of Loch Uisge, cultivation remains of which are visible to the north of this feature.
It was felt that whilst this feature was likely to be slightly cut into by the realignment of the public road, as it is a linear feature and only a short section would be destroyed, no mitigation measures were needed.<1>
