NM9709 : Eredine Sheep Fank

Eredine Sheep Fank
Eredine Sheep Fank
A disused relic of earlier land use. The Eredine Sheep Fank was used to gather sheep for sorting and selecting. Historic records show that the land was cleared of sheep in 1910 to make way for grouse and deer. It was then sold to the Forestry Commission in the late 1930s. Now, this drystone walled Fank lies in extensive conifer forestry, but magnificent views of Loch Awe are still available at the site.
