Situated to the W of Loch Lagaidh on the N of the Dundonnell River, there is a group of shieling-huts which were recorded during the course of a pre-afforestation survey undertaken by J Wordsworth. At the date of visit, the features were badly obscured but some oval and circular shielings were still visible.
