The area known as the Aird Peninsula, Shieldaig was surveyed by Anne MacInnes and Terry Doe in 2013. The Aird area has been well populated and worked probably in pre clearance times around the 18th century or even before. The building type is typical of this time. The evidence of ports in every area of settlement shows use of the sea for both access and fishing.
Farmstead. There are 4 buildings attached to a substantial dyke, and a former byre. They have rounded interior corners and cruck slots visible. <1>
