Full Description

A 9m stretch of collapsed drystone walling was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It lay on the N bank of the Allt an Lapain just to the W of a small waterfall and measured c.0.4m wide and c.0.5m high. This dyke was probably built to prevent stock gaining access to the burn at this point and may have been built in the 19th century after the sheep runs were established. <1>
