Full Description

RCAHMS Canmore description:
NM 6924 4715 The lime kiln is rectangular externally, with one draw-hole facing the western shore of Loch Aline. It is built into the steep hillside and heavily overgrown. There are traces of quarrying on the plateau above and behind it. A gully/track leads from the draw-hole to the shore, where there are traces of a stone jetty. A later jetty stands to the SW, with a track leading to it along the shore from the direction of the kiln. The gully/track from the kiln is overlain (and rendered inoperable) by the carriage road along the western shore of the loch, which was built in 1891 (Gaskell, P, Morvern Transformed, 103). The site was surveyed on 1 September 2009.
