Glac nan Sgadan embraces an area of gently sloping ground fronting an indented foreshore, which is bounded on the S by the Allt Glac nan Sgadan, a stream with rock-and rubble-strewn banks, with steeper, grass and bracken-covered slopes rising to the rear. On the N and S, the hillsides are punctuated by rock outcrops and close by there is some scrub and relict woodland. Disposed over the lower stream-riven slopes of this natural hollow, close to a 19th-century cottage, there are the remains of a pre- clearance farmstead, comprising a dwelling-house, outbuildings, cultivated plots, and enclosures, together with a series of cultivation remains, evidence of turf-cutting, and a number of stances.

A farmstead, comprising one roofed building, two unroofed buildings and a short length of wall is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Inverness-shire 1876, sheet lxxvii). Three unroofed buildings and a short length of wall are shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1971).
