Full Description

The remains of a bank, possibly the remains of a turf dyke, were recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It was located on the N side of an unnamed burn that runs SW-wards to Loch Duich, within a modern enclosure to the E of Kintail Lodge Hotel. It was spread to c.0.8m wide and c.0.3m high. On a terrace towards the E edge of the enclosure were the remains of rigs or feanagan.
This seems to be part of a field system now largely destroyed. It may have linked with the invershiel/Uchd an t-Sabhail boundary (MHG5936) to define the area of rigs. <1>

A short stretch of a dyke, approximately 25m in length, is visible on aerial photography. <2>
