Full Description

Areas of lazy bed cultivation and three rectangular buildings are visible on aerial photography on a relatively flat area of Aird na Loch. The buildings are each divided into three rooms, with the central room smaller than the two either side. They measure approximately 10m by 4m. A long dyke is also visible, likely a boundary enclosing this flatter area to the south eastern, with a natural craggy ridge bounding the area to the south west. <1> <2>

The area was photographed during aerial surveys by HES in 2015. See link below to HES Canmore record for photos. <3>
