Full Description

The remains of a drystone walled structure were recorded during the NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It was apparently round-ended, aligned SE-NW and measured c.5m by c.2.5m over walls c.0.8m wide and up to 0.3m. It was not shown on the earlier OS maps.
It was possibly a dwelling house or store, it was presumably abandoned when sheep were introduced here in the early 19th century. <1>
