Full Description

A fish trap is visible in aerial photography in Balmacara bay to the west of the mouth of Balmacara Burn. It is unclear whether there are more than one and it is possible that as the appearance of the features seem to change over aerial photography taken between 1999-2015, some of the curvilinear features visible may be natural. <1> <2> <3> <4>

This fishtrap was photographed by RCAHMS during their aerial surveys in 2011. See link below to HES Canmore record. <5>
