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 roofed building is shown at this location on Bedford's marine chart of 1861 and the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Argyllshire and Buteshire 1875, sheet xliii) but not on any subsequent maps. Its original purpose is unknown. There were no visible signs of any building found whilst walking the site. <1> <2>
