Full Description

Three pronounced mounds were recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. They were c.4m in diameter on the north side of an unnamed burn. They could not positively be identified as structures and they may have just been natural flood heaps. However, they were interpreted during the site visit as posssible shieling mounds. <1>
