Full Description

The stone and turf dyke was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It was spread to c.1.4m wide and was no more than 0.5m high, following a sinuous course N-wards and was cut by the path up the glen. The dyke became increasingly constructed of turf as it crossed flatter ground towards the Abhainn Chonaig. It may have been a boundary dyke associated with MHG59255. <1>
