Field Visit (28 September 1990)

NG26SW 5.02 2365 6021 to 2327 6085.

There are at least eighteen buildings and five enclosures strung out along a shallow valley partially occupied by Halistra Loch, an artificial lake, created after the second edition of the Ordnance Survey map of 1904 (Island of Skye &c., Inverness-shire, 1904, ix). They appear to fall into nine units of at least one and up to four buildings, generally with a conjoined enclosure. Two buildings (WAT90 124-135) have evidence of phasing. All the buildings and enclosures are shown as unroofed on the first and second editions of the Ordnance Survey maps (Island of Skye, Inverness-shire, 1880, 1904, ix).

To the N (NG 233 609) is a further cluster of at least seventeen buildings and two enclosures on both sides of an unnamed burn on the W side of the public road. Most are shown as unroofed on the first and second editions of the Ordnance Survey maps. The area to the N has been heavily improved.

(WAT90 109-138, 189-212).

Visited by RCAHMS (DCC) 28 September 1990.
