Full Description

Centred on 985 455

Some of the walls of these buildings survive to a height of about 1.3m, and may incorporate natural rock formations. To the NW of the township, at about NG 9854 4567, there is what is probably a corn-drying kiln and numerous hollows of indeterminate origin set into a fluvio-glacial hummock. <1>

A township comprising one unroofed, one partially roofed and twenty-two roofed buildings and two lengths of field wall is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Ross-shire 1880, sheet civ). One roofed and twelve unroofed buildings are shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1973).
