Full Description

A possible enclosed area was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. The flat ground down by the river Croe had been enclosed with an irregular turf, or turf and stone, dyke which was spread to c1.2m wide and was up to 0.6m high. The area was crossed by minor burns and had been extensively drained. It was possible that some of the drains, where particularly close together, were in fact the remains of rig or feanagan.<1>

Fragmentary dykes are visible in aerial photography. Extent of the area unclear. <2>
