Full Description

The slight remains of four structures were recorded during an NTS pre-afforestation survey of Kintail and West Affric in 1997. They lay in rush-infested grassland near the confluence of the river Croe and the Abhainn Chonaig. They and their surrounding enclosure were ill-defined but included one structure c.7m by c.3m over slight founds c.0.8m wide and c.0.15m high. The enclosure within which these buildings were sited was a trapezoid c.18m long in each of its dimensions.
It seems unlikely that this was the main settlement of Inchcroa as noted on the Roy survey of 1750. It is more likely that this is a cottars settlement on the floodplain between the rivers Croe and Chonaig. <1>
