This place name covers a short section of the coastline as it turns around from the Inner Loch into Barrisdale Bay, as far as the point where the footpath from Lochournhead to Barrisdale meets the vehicular track to the Barrisdale moorings at the Fraoch Eilean. These sites were recorded by NOSAS in 2004 as part of an archaeological survey of Inner Loch Hourn.

Site: 401. An extensive area of rig and furrow cultivation remains, 27m E/W x 7m, on at least 3 levels, on a NE facing slope amongst rocky scarps, above the mouth of Inner Loch Hourn. <1>
