Full Description

NG80NW 8.03 8329 0748.

Built against a steep slope, on the right bank of the Allt Li, some 40m to the WSW of the house at Li, there are the well-preserved remains of a drying kiln. Its bowl, which is largely intact and devoid of debris, measures up to 2.6m in diameter, at least 1.2m in depth and is contained by a wall 0.8m in thickness. The flue was on the N and is lintelled. The kiln stands within the remains of a walled enclosure, now almost entirely reduced to its turf-covered stone wall-footings. Within the enclosure, 6m to the NNE of the kiln, there is an hemispherical pit (2m in diameter and up to 0.8m deep) with a rickle of stone (0.7m thick) around its perimeter. Its function is unclear, but it may be another kiln.
