Full Description

A small irregular drystone walled structure was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It was situated 100m NE of a sheepfold (see MHG59235) and c.10m NW of the Allt na Faing. It measured c.6m by c.4m. Its walls survived up to 0.35m high and c.0.5m wide. It was aligned NE/SW down slope. This structure may have been a pen, though it is curious that it is sited so far up the slope.
About 50m to the SW was a circular stone feature c.1m in diameter with stones c.0.4m wide and c.0.5m high. <1>
