Full Description

A turf and stone dyke was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It had survived to c1m in height and c1.2m wide and incorporated large boulders. A much slighter dyke c0.6m wide and c0.2m high lay to the N. The substantial dyke may have been a replacement to the slighter feature to the N. Both appear to define the edge of the field (MHG59229) to the N <1>
