Field Visit (April 2002 - May 2002)

small rectangular bothy (2) 5.1m long by 4.0m wide, set into a rocky outcrop and aligned roughly E-W. This building appears on the 1st Edition OS map, as noted above. It is a simple single roomed drystone construction, built into a low cliff or outcrop with its gables in fair condition. Also noted on the 1st Edition OS map is a right-angled stretch of walling extending to E and N of the building. Not noted on the map, however, is a further line of walling, severely degraded, running SW from the bothy. This extends most of the way to the western shore.
