Full Description

The oval earth foundation of a possible house aligned NE – SW was recorded during survey by Historic Assynt. There is a linear dump of stone over the NE wall and extending beyond it in both directions. This latter feature could be the remains of stone cleared from the adjoining foundation.

This structure appears to be the foundation of a pre-clearance house, with associated outbuildings and enclosures, which were not recorded by Home or by anyone subsequently and are thus presumed to pre-date 1774. <1>
