Visited by the Assynt's Hidden Lives project in December 2009. Spread around the area west of the A837 and east of Loch Assynt on undulating land with apparent natural rock outcrops are the remains of three structures.
137A - stone rubble enclosure 20m by 18m and 0.4m high, aligned N/S with walls up to 1.5m spread, very overgrown. A few clearance cairns are located nearby.
137B - Stone building footing measuring 18m by 5m and up to 0.4m high, aligned NE/SW, with a 1m wall spread.
137C - A stone rubble building, measuring 11m by 5m and 0.4m high, aligned NE/SW with walls up to 1.2m wide, attached to a sub-rectangular enclosure 30m x 20m. Part of the west enclosure wall makes up part of the south-east building wall. Only indistinct footings of each structure remains. <1>
It is possible that these features are related to the township to the E of the A837 (MHG12101). <2>
