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'. Here there was a half cup shaped enclosure about 9 by 6 metres. At the back was a broken stone dyke and within it were many fallen stones some of which were positioned in a line suggesting that it may have been closed off from time to time with wattle hurdles. Many of the trees in the area show signs of coppicing. At one side there were two parallel walls 2.1 metres apart and about 3.5 metres long. Between the walls there was a line of stones making this look as if it had been shed or shelter, possibly a lamb pen. <1> <2>
