Full Description

A dam was identified in a DBA and walkover survey undertaken by the National Trust for Scotland at their Inverewe Estate in 1998.
(INVG026) Like many of the small lochs on Inverewe Estate the outlet end of Lochan na Ba Caoile has been dammed with a concrete construction, presumably to help control the level of Loch nan Dailthean. It is presumed that it dates to some time during the 20th century purely because the construction is concrete.
It was considered to be in stable condition with photography recommended once every five years. <1>
