NTS Survey

The Inverewe Estate is crossed by a number of broad, straight turf banks c1.2m wide and c0.8m high which are presumed to be contemporaneous with each other. It seems likely that they date to the late 18th or 19th centuries. There are three to the east of the A832:

The western bank (INVG034) runs from Loch a Chuirn to the N shore of the small un-named loch N of Meall an Leathaid Dharaich. It then runs from the S shore of that loch to the break of slope above NG88SE48. Below the cliff there is a stone dyke that runs down to the N shore of Loch Kernsary (described at NG88SE48) which may be part of the same construct.

Another runs in a SE-S-SSW arc from the dam at Loch a Chuirn [INVG028] to the turf bank that runs by the Alltan a Mhaide [INVG031].

The other (INVG031) runs in a NE-SE-S arc from the source of the Alltan a Mhaide to Loch Kernsary. It has been cut by the right of way that passes along the E side of Loch Kernsary.

Information from NTS: INVG034, 029 & 031 (JF 1989 & JH 1998)
