Full Description

A desk-based assessment and walkover survey of Cuil on the shore of Loch Linnhe, Lochaber, was carried out in 2010 by N Malcolm for RCAHMS' 'Scotland's Rural Past Project'. A possible house platform at NM9827 5589 was visually inspected and measured. It was a roughly rectangular, slightly raised series of stones probably outlining the position of a house. It measured about 9m by 5m. Only a few stones remained but enough to show that something had been there. For much of the year this site is covered with vegetation, mainly wild irises. It was not shown on any map. <1> <2>

See HES Canmore record (link below) for the plan drawn of the site.
