Stone pen in Glen Bracadale
Here is evidence of the one-time importance of sheep-farming to this part area. This large stone-walled enclosure in Glen Bracadale would be large enough to contain a huge number of sheep. It is almost in good enough condition to be used today, and indeed, it has been is use recently enough for a modern galvanised gate to have been fitted to the entrance. However, the absence of mud or footprints show that no sheep have been through the gate for a few years. (Closer view of the wall - NG3739 : Stone pen in Glen Bracadale).
