Full Description

A sheepfold was recorded during the NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It was in good condition and retained creeps in its N & E walls. The south wall appeared to have been removed since its depiction on the 2nd edition OS map, unless the structure was completely rebuilt. The sheepfold's interior had a level platform c.8m by c.3m that was interpreted as a structure during this site visit. <1>

The sheepfold is visible in APs. <2>
