A township, a crofting township and two roofed Corn Mills are depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Ross-shire, Island of Lewis 1854, sheet 38). The township comprises twenty-eight roofed, one partially roofed, six unroofed buildings and a head-dyke. There are two blocks of crofts or plots to the E and the W of the burn named Gil Mhor. That to the E comprises eight roofed buildings and one unroofed building, and that to the W comprises eighteen roofed and two unroofed buildings.

Forty-one roofed, two partially roofed, thirty-six unroofed buildings and the fragmentary remains of the head-dyke are shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1974).
