Full Description

The hillocks at Upper Hubbadale are in variable condition. The main point of interest is a water leat that may be associated with run-off from a documented underground 'water engine'. It has been suggested that the shaft had a cog and rung gin engine but the evidence on the ground for this is ambiguous. (1)
