Full Description

A substantial dyke was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It was repaired in the 1990s, and ran NE/SW over the grass-covered scree spread on the S side of the Eas Druim na Staidhre. This still formed a boundary restricting access to S end of Glenlichd. It was probably first built in the early or mid-19th century, possibly replacing the nearby turf and stone dyke (KIN073). <1>
