This farmsteading, comprising two buildings and a rectilinear enclosure, has been recorded on oblique aerial photography (RCAHMSAP 2004) lying within the remains of a system of field banks and rig on the W shore of the Kyle of Durness. The farmstead is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Sutherland 1878, Sheet V) as three roofed buildings and a rectilinear enclosure. The rig and field banks lie between the shore and the line of the modern road.
