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'. Adjacent to MHG58525 at NM9840 5511 were the footings of another building, behind the modern barn. What was left of it was severely damaged when the modern barn was erected and only a few stones can now be identified. It is shown as roofed on 1st and 2nd edition OS maps, and was probably present before the changes that occurred between 1871 and 1883. It can just be made out on an 1883 Erskine Beveridge photograph. <1> <2>

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