Field Visit (21 September 1997 - 21 September 1997)

A well-built drystone building c18m by c5m aligned NW/SE is sited on the floodplain N of the river Croe. The walls stand up to c1.3m high and are c0.6m thick, the stones are partially dressed and the walls contain angular hearting. As shown on the current OS map the building has 3 compartments c5m long, c6mlong and c5m long internally. A hearth c0.75m wide and c0.3m deep is built into one of the division walls. Set at right angles to this structure, at its SE end, is another aligned NE/SW measuring c10m by c5m over walls c0.9m wide and c0.4m high, constructed of boulder walling. Both buildings were unroofed by 1902.

The former is probably a shepherd's house built early in the 19th century and may be the second household mentioned in the 1841 census at Gleann Lichd.

There is another drystone building c4m by c3m with walls c0.7m wide and c1.4m high lying to the N. Close by are two other buildings - stores(?) - c3m by c1m and c2m diameter with walls c0.6m wide and c0.3m high.

To the SW of this group are the remains of a drystone dyke creating an enclosure marked on the 1st edition OS map.
