Full Description

A possible stone walled structure was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It was in an isolated position on an otherwise featureless slope, aligned NW/SE and measured c.5m by c.3m over walls c.0.5m wide and c.0.15m high. Its location and situation makes it questionable as to whether this was really a man-made feature, particularly as there was no sign of enrichment in the area such as a more grassy surround. <1>
