Full Description

A substantial dyke was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It was c.1.2m wide and c.0.7m high, and formed a prominent boundary running up the hill as shown on the 1971 OS map. It was not recorded on the earlier OS maps. It is probably connected with sheep farming. <1>
