Cairns, buildings and enclosures (616 – 623) - centred on NH 2532 5045 were recorded by NOSAS in 2007 as part of the Scotland's Rural Past Project. These sites are situated in the linear strip of ground, which is1.5kms in length, on the south side of the valley floor to the west of Inverchoran. It is mainly grassland and heather and is bounded on the south side by a forest plantation. Aerial photographs of 1947 show that there had been a timber camp at the west end.
