Canmore lists two shieling-related sites on the SW flanks of Beinn Bheag Deas, between Loch Aineort and Loch nam Bradan. The first is a group of Shieling Huts, reported my Miller in 1967, which straddle the more modern fenceline at NF 799 284, comprising of a group of up to 6 small bothain, although the locality is heavily overgrown with bracken obscuring much detail. The second Canmore entry was first reported by O.S. in 1967 as a possible cairn at NF 7776 2967, however subsequently ‘downgraded’ to Shieling Huts after an HES visit in 2010. This is a new unrecorded site, between the two reported sites and higher up the hill at NF 7788 2954. It consists of the stone foundations of three, possibly four sub circular bothain, probably turf walled. There is one significantly larger and with more masonry which was probably the main bothan with the smaller structures used for dairy-working and storage of produce.
