Full Description

Allt na Glaic Uidhre
Enclosure/Sheepfold 810 - NH 33525 54150 (SW end) Situated at an altitude of 210m above and 300m to the SE of Glacour in a coniferous plantation. The remains of this enclosure which is sub-rectangular and aligned NE-SW, occupy a relatively flat spur of land between two burns; it measures roughly 100m x 50m. (Note; report incorrectly states 100m x 5m T Blackie 1/12/17). The low moss covered stone walls are grossly wasted. The enclosure has been planted with coniferous trees some of which are windblown, the rest may soon be felled (the upper part of the wood has been felled) A track clips the SW edge of the enclosure. Marked on FES and on current OS. <1>
