Full Description

This site was noted in an Environmental Statement, prepared by Cathy Dagg, for a proposed wind farm at Lochluichart.

WestAultguish, cottage and enclosure at NH 3378 7085. As recorded on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map, two roofed buildings and an attached sub-rectangular enclosure to the south. The buildings are now inundated, approximately 100m east of the end of the pier, while part of the enclosure walls would lie between the road and shore. But are no longer visible and were possibly used as material in the construction of the pier. A 1950s photograph indicates that the walling was of rough rubble construction and the enclosure was probably a temporary holding pen for sheep. There is no historical evidence for earlier settlement at this location. <1>
