Field Visit (2 September 1997)

NH43SE 56 48609 33354

This still is situated on the S side of a secluded gully that cuts into the broken hillside to the WNW of Loch nam Bat. It has been reduced to little more than a subrectangular platform, which has been dug into the hillside on the S and closed off on the N by an earthen bank spread to 1m in thickness and 0.8m in height. The platform measures 4.1m from E to W by 1.8m transversely and the entrance is marked by a break in the bank on the N. There is a local tradition that this was a still (information from Mr Younie, Garbeg).
