Full Description

The general area comprises the outwash of the Allt a'Choire Dhuibh lying some 100m to the NW of the present day car park was recorded by NOSAS in 2007 as part of the Scotland's Rural Past Project. The ground is SE facing, very stony and potentially once a prime source of building stone at one time.

890 Track - NH 22571 51924 (E end) to NH 21950 51950 (W end) An overgrown track starts at the ford over the Allt a Choir Duibh just to the north of the bridge, climbs a little then contours around the steep slope above the loch. It is roughly 400m in length, well made, well graded and c1.5m in width. It descends to the cattle grid at its west end. It may be the old track marked on the Roy map of 1750 and almost certainly is the one marked on the 1825 estate plan. <1>
