Munlochy Bay (4436)

Current Priority
Low
East
266591
North
852960
Site Type
Remains Of Jetty
Period
19th century AD

Trackway and jetty remaining, but no upstanding mill. 13.2.13 - Was there a mill? Nothing visible at all at the site. Nor is there now any superstructure that could be interpreted as a jetty. At the site, there is a shingle and shell spit curving into Munlochy Bay, a moored boat, and a partially overgrown track that leads up the south bank by the east side of a field. The south bank probably represents a raised beach.

The track would suggest that the "jetty" as was may have been used as a ferry point across the bay. The site represents the most northerly point of the south shore of Munlochy Bay.

Comments:

The track would suggest that the "jetty" as was may have been used as a ferry point across the bay. The site represents the most northerly point of the south shore of Munlochy Bay.

Recommendations:

13.2.13 If ever there was a jetty or a mill, both have now gone. There is nothing to preserve.
