Full Description

An area of abandoned peat cutting on the NW-facing upper slopes of Meall and Doire (INGV021) was identified in a DBA and walkover survey undertaken by the National Trust for Scotland at their Inverewe Estate in 1998.
The most obvious area covers an area about 80m square. Whether these were the cuttings for dwellings on the south side of the estate rather than the abandoned settlements on the north side, which are some considerable distance away, is not known. The site was considered to be in stable condition, and recommended to be photographed once every 5 years. <1>
