Ballimenach Yair
Ballimenach Yair
For the main description of the yair, see NS3277 : Ballimenach Yair.

The present photograph was taken near low water, and shows more of this L-shaped structure (the area in the foreground is where the yair makes a turn to the left). Ballimenach Yair appears to have silted up to a greater extent than nearby NS3376 : Geilston Yair, and the stones that make up its wall are not so evident, although the overall shape is still clear.

For the part on the left, see NS3277 : Ballimenach Yair; for the darker part on the right, see NS3277 : Ballimenach Yair. Both pictures were taken from the bend that appears in the foreground of the present photo.

The building on the shore, right of centre, is NS3377 : Seabank Cottage.
Ballimenach Yair
Located at what was once the Butts, this is the third of six old yairs (fish-traps) whose remains can be seen on the shore between Ardoch and Craigendoran. The second is Geilston Yair LinkExternal link and the fourth is at Ardmore LinkExternal link
