Full Description

Small subrectangular structure. Defined by one course of stone (protruding through turf) - no bank. Partially built on to bedrock. The stones are quite tumbled off the wall line and structure is generally in very poor state of preservation. Measures 5 m NNE/SSW externally along W side x 2.9 m. The E wall is untraceable - so only three sides evident. The walls are spread up to 1.2 m wide, though possibly originally only 0.65 m (2 stones) wide as far as can be judged.
In grassland on edge of 20 m contour in area of glacial debris and exposed bedrock. Overlooking Loch Borralie to S.
Possible shieling.
Recommendations: None. <1><2>
