Full Description

A 30m stretch of drystone dyke was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. it was visible to the E of the new track and to the S of the Allt Coire a' Mhadaidh. The dyke only survived to its basal course c.0.9m wide and c.0.2m high but the surviving construction and linear course SW/NE suggest it was 'relatively' recent in date. The rest lay under either the new track or scree from the burn flooding. <1>

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