Full Description

Surveyed by Historic Assynt.
Structure N (NC 15170 26364) is close to the mill and consists of some fragments of a dyke or wall running E-W across a shallow gully with some vague suggestions of two curving extensions on falling ground to the south. It is most probably a section of field dyke or just possibly the severely robbed remains of a drying kiln. <1>
