Full Description

The Gleann Goibhre shieling site was surveyed by NOSAS members in 2002 and 2016. The site lies to the south of the Allt Goibhre, on a north facing terrace at a height of 300m. A pipeline with parallel track traverse the south part of the site and its construction may well have destroyed some features of the site. The site comprises the remains of 34 structures and a possible enclosing bank.
