Field Visit (7 July 1909)

109. Cnoc Odhar.

Some 20' to the N. of the cairn on the E. end of Cnoc Odhar (No. 132) are the remains of a hut circle, partially demolished, and the site of another about 50' W. of it. Both appear to have been of the simple oval form. There are a few small mounds in their neighbourhood, but the hill at this part is overgrown with whins, and they are difficult to find.

OS 6-inch map: Sutherland Sheet cix.

RCAHMS 1911, visited (AOC) 7th July 1909.
