Full Description

A sturf and stone dyke was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It was spread to c.1m wide and c.0.6m high and ran NE/SW on the N side of an unnamed burn for c70m. It was not visible E of the track down Glen Lichd. This may have been a boundary of the same period as MHG59570 a little to the N, or it could be a revetment to prevent flooding. <1>

This dyke is visible on aerial photography. <2> <3>
