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 circular depression 3.2m in diameter and 0.5m deep. In front was a bank about 0.2m high. From here there was an excellent view to the east up Glen Duror and to the south-west down Loch Linnhe as far as Mull. This was an observation post built by the Home Guard in 1940.
