Full Description

A number of low grass covered hollows were recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. They were located immediately east of a small channel running NW into the river Croe. The southernmost hollow was almost certainly the remains of a sheiling hut measuring c.6m by c.3m. The other 4 on both sides of the the channel may have been similar remains. <1>
