There are three turf or turf-and-stone shieling-huts on the flood-plain of the Bynack Burn immediately N of the confluence with the Allt an t'Seilich. They range from 7.3m to 9.1m in length by between 4.1m and 5.3m in breadth over walls spread to between 1.2m and 1.7m in thickness and standing to about 0.3m in height. The largest of the huts occupies a low knoll and is subdivided into two compartments, and has an outshot attached to the S end and a yard or small enclosure attached to the E side (MAR93 528).
