Full Description

A survey of the Laide settlement area was undertaken by Macinnes, A. and Macintyre, J. in 2011.

Croft 19. The croftland is mostly rough grass, with evidence of previous cultivation in the lower part. A drain across the bottom takes the issues to the burn, Allt Na Doire Leithe, and below this drain the area is very wet and boggy.

Corn drying kiln. There is the ruin of what is probably a small corn-drying kiln just below the centre of the croftland. The sides appear to have been built up, and, although some unwanted stones may have been discarded into it later, the cavity shape suggests its former use. <1>
