A sinuous stone and turf dyke was recorded during survey by Headland Archaeology Ltd in 1998. The dyke runs E to W 150m to the N of Cnoc na Cruaiche. It is up to 1m wide and 0.9m high and can be traced over a distance of 180m.

The middel part of the dyke is well defined byt it fades out as low rounded banks at either end.
