Full Description

This sheepfold was built by the North of Scotland Hydro Electric Board, c1951, to replace the sheepfold at Armishader (MHG58656). The NoSHEB's newly built Storr Lochs Power Station had raised the level of Loch Leathan, cutting off footpath access to the old fank at Armishader, which was still used by South Scorrybreac Sheep Stock Club until this time.
