At the start of this track is the remains of a black house dating from the first half of the 19th Century and is built form granite stone. The house was divided into two by a wooden partition. Immediately to the east of the cottage is evidence of lazy beds, with a low turf wall enclosing it. The hills nearby were often used as hiding places for fugitives. One such fugitive was Duncan MacKechnie, a local man accused of stealing and slaughtering sheep who is thought to have hidden out in the caves in the wooded hill area.
