Full Description

A short section of probable turf and stone dyke was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It curved for c.50m down a natural gulley and was defined by a line of boulders spread to c.1.2m wide and up to 0.4m high. The rest of the dyke presumably had been washed away by the hill scree. It was presumably a pre-19th century boundary dyke. <1>
