Full Description

Visited by the Assynt's Hidden Lives project in December 2009. Situated on land overlooking Loch Assynt to the west is a drystone dyke. It is constructed of varied rubble, two courses wide with a rubble core. It is aligned NE-SW and curves WSW as it enters the loch. The dyke is generally in fair condition although it may have been truncated by the road. A number of clearance cairns are visible on the west side of wall. <1>
