Full Description

The remains of a turf and stone dyke and two possible structures were recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. The dyke ran alongside an unnamed and unmarked burn, and was spread to c1.2m wde and was c0.4m high. The two structures were also sited along this burn; one was ill-defined, measuring c.4m by c.3m over stones c0.6m wide and c0.2m high, and the second structure was more obvious, c.3m by c.2m, built of large boulders c0.7m wide and c0.3m high. These features were presumably the remains of a small shieling. <1>
