Six groups of shieling-huts and various pens are scattered along the valley bottom and sides on the E bank of the Bynack Burn from near Bynack Lodge in the S to the confluence of the Bynack and Geldie Burns in the N. The same area is partially enclosed by a dyke, which also runs down the W side of the Bynack Burn to a sheepfold and sheep-dip on the S of the Geldie Burn.
