Activities

Field Visit (10 April 1997 - 10 April 1997)

The remains of a bank, possibly the remains of a turf dyke spread to c0.8m wide and c0.3m high, can be seen on the N side of an unnamed burn that runs SW-wards to Loch Duich. It is within a modern enclosure to the E of Kintail Lodge Hotel. On a terrace towards the E edge of the enclosure are the remains of rigs or feanagan.

This seems to be part of a field system now largely destroyed. It may have linked with the invershiel/Uchd an t-Sabhail boundary (KIN045) to define the area of rigs.
