OS 1:10,000 map, (1977)

A crannog was discovered in 1888 during draining operations at Loch a' Mhuillin. A stone structure measuring about 26 metres by 16.2 metres was found to be resting on a platform of horizontal timbers consolidated by a number of upright piles. During examination of the site, a number of human and animal bones were recovered. There are now no surface indications of the crannog and its precise position is not known.
