Full Description

A turf and stone dyke was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It was spread to c.1.1m wide and c.0.6m high and ran along the N bank of an un-named burn. At the S end of the dyke, near the river Croe, and possibly built out of the dyke, was a tiny stone structure c1m diameter over walls c0.3m wide and c0.2m high.
Some 30m to the N was another, similar, dyke which was aligned c.N/S but which was isolated from any other features. <1>
