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'. The 1st and 2nd edition OS maps both show a small roofed building and accompanying enclosure at this location. It is now reduced to a scattered number of stones but the rough outline of the building, probably a shed, and the enclosure can be made out. The area enclosed forms a slight depression. It is possible that a larger building once occupied the site. <1> <2>
