Full Description

During a walkover survey in August 2008, a number of probable shieling-type structures were noted on the alluvial fan of the stream above the road but were not investigated. The building recorded on recent mapping is probably recent and is no longer standing. The place name presumably refers to one of the shielings. <1>
