Old structure where the water leaves Lochan na Gaoithe
A partially fallen structure over the beginning of Allt Lochan na Goithe as it leaves the lochan. I'm not sure when or why this was made; my investigations have fallen flat but the loch appears on some very old maps. It appears to have had a roof that has fallen inside the walls of the structure, but this hasn't impeded the water's flow in any way.

The highly weathered wooden column that is still standing rocks back and forward as the water flows. I think the wood has been doing this for a number of years with nobody to see its dance, as it hides away in the hills.
