Full Description

NH68NE 14 6726 8520.
Cairn (NR) (Remains of) OS 6" map, Ross-shire, 2nd ed., (1907)

On the summit of Cnoc Leddie are the remains of a large cairn. The stones have been nearly all removed for building purposes.
Name Book 1874.

Situated just below the summit of the hill is a mutilated area now barely recognisable as a cairn. It is heather-covered with a number of stones visible on the south side. It could have measured between 6 and 12.0m in diameter, but the remains are too amorphous to make anything out of it.
Visited by OS (W D J) 20 May 1963.
