Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. N.W. of Loch Lait.
Close to the dyke are the stone footings of what may have been a bothy, 8 yards long with 4 yards of the width at each end still extant. The side next to the dyke, with which it would have been parallel, was probably removed when the dyke was built. Further up this dyke, at approximately OS 530366 and 4 yards out from the forestry fence, there are parallel stone footings 25 yards long and with a small cairn built on top near the N.W. end. <1>
