Information from RCAHMS (AKK) 24 April 1996.
A walkover survey of the area around Doire-chlaigionn was undertaken by Macinnes, A. and Doe, T. in 2014.
Site 22. This bothy is very narrow in width - 2m. There is a lot of tumble in the ruin but a door and blocked windows face the shore with a small window in the gable end. There is a buttress against the external facing of this wall for support. The walls are of rough construction made with stones from the shoreline which naturally break in layers. A cruck slot is visible in one wall. <1>
