Full Description

Àrdgaserie. This area is marked on the Roy Map of 1747 as Ardgashrig and on Thompson’s Atlas of 1832 as Ardgassick, but does not appear on any Ordnance Survey map. The land around Loch Doire Ghloghain is now very wet and boggy, hence the features noted are ranged on the hillsides to the east and west of the wide glen. It was surveyed in 2013 by Rough Bounds Archaeology et al.

Site 11. Possible shieling built against low east facing out crop of bedrock – low walled c. 5x3 mtrs with entrance on south side by the bedrock – structure beside rigs N/S sloping gently eastwards. <1>

NGR adjusted based on 2012 aerial photographs. <2>
