Full Description

A low turf and stone dyke runs approximately N-S, crosses the Allt Loch a'Choire Dhuibh and turns to run up the Allt Glac Scap for about 20m before terminating at a small gully. This is one of many turf dykes dividing the Corry farm land and may have served as a head dyke to the township. (Photo 20) <1>

The position of this on the site plan would suggest that it ran close to the trackway MHG52647. <2>
