Full Description

NG80SW 2 8469 0388.

On the right bank of Allt Tarsuinn, in boulder-strewn ground, there are the footings of a small shieling-hut. It measures 2.7m from WSW to ENE by 2.1m transversely over a wall, composed of upright slabs and rubble, up to 0.6m in thickness and, where best preserved on the NNE, up to 1m in height. Downslope, immediately to the N, and set back into the slope, there are the turf-covered boulder footings of what may be a small enclosure (3.3m by 2.6m internally).
