Full Description

Ard (Achatatoil)

These sites were recorded by NOSAS in 2008/9 as part of an archaeological survey of outer Loch Hourn.

Site 1350. A turf and stone bank, crossing a ride within a forestry plantation. It is 1.75m wide at the base, stands to 1.25m high and runs for 39m in a NNE-SSW direction. It is probable that it continues into the plantation to the SSW, though it fades out on the NNE side. <1>
