Full Description

A collapsed round-ended drystone structure was recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. It was located 120m S of the Falls of Glomach in an area prone to flooding. It measured c.4m by c.2m over walls c.0.6m wide and up to c.0.3m high and was aligned E/W. Even less well-defined 'structures' lie nearby. During the site visit the structure was interpreted as the remains of a shieling hut, but it could also have be interpreted as a still site. <1>
