Full Description

This rectangle of apparent rigs is visible on the aerial photographs, and was noted in low sun from the other side of the valley, but thick bracken cover made it impossible to identify the rigs on the ground. No walling or stone piles were located.
It was felt that this feature is well above the most recent revised route of the pipeline from Loch Uisge to the turbine house and should be unaffected. <1>
