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 is a quarry of dolomite which was used to build the nearby march dyke between Cuil and Ardsheal in 1771. A lease on this was taken out by the Duror Rock Company after the Second World War but it was never commercially exploited. <1> <2>
