Field Visit (2009)

This enclosure covers an area of c. 90 metres square, containing grassy pasture succumbing to bracken. The enclosure is constructed in dry stone, using varied rubble and forming a sub-square shape in plan. Much of the enclosure stands to original wallhead although short sections have collapsed entirely. A complex sheep bucht is situated on the east shore of Loch Druim Suardalain. The area has been improved, and there is good grazing around the shores of the loch.
