Full Description

A walkover survey of the area around east of An Garbh Uillt (The Rough Burn) was undertaken in 2015 by Rough Bounds Archaeology et al.

Site 19. Dam on An Garbh Uillt Dam now only half way across burn. Intake pipe on east side still in place but pieces of broken dam wall and iron piping down stream. Possible that the dam was built for a water supply at a house, Faire na Sgùrr, built on the edge of Arisaig by the Astley Nicolsons. <1>

NGR adjusted based on 2012 aerial photographs. <2>
