NG 946 068 On the S side of Loch Beag at the head of Loch Hourn above low water level parallel walls extend from the shore a short distance northwards into the loch. The W side and S end are largely revetted, the E side is free standing and supported by two buttresses on its outer side. The N end is open to the sea. This was originally used as a dry dock (P MacRae personal communication).
