Archaeology Notes

NJ01NE 39 NJ 08813 18062.

A shieling group, dominated by a large oval mound, is situated in moorland on the N bank of the Allt Iomadaidh. The mound measures 13m from NNW to SSE by 8.3m transversely and 0.5m in height; on the date of visit it was entirely overgrown with reedy grass and no evidence of any structure on it was visible. Immediately W of the mound is a rectangular building (NJ 08800 18056), which measures 9.5m from NNE to SSW by 5.5m transversely over wall reduced to footings 0.3m in height. Directly S of the mound is a subrectangular hut (NJ 08815 18051), measuring 5.4m from NNW to SSE by 3.2m transversely over grass-grown remains of a robbed boulder wall 0.2m in height. A second hut (NJ 08831 18066), which lies 12m E of the mound, measures 5.5m from N to S by 3.3m transversely over grass-grown boulder wall-footings 0.3m in height, and there is an entrance on the E.
