Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Culnaskiach Falls.
Running across a slope are three large foundation stones of a length of walling which disappears into dense forestry where it cannot be traced any further. Towards the precipitous edge of the burn this continues as a narrow terrace and immediately behind, visible for a short distance, are similar faint traces of a parallel, but more bulky, terrace, which seems to indicate a defended site. <1>
