Hand to wellie connection made through eyehole at base of entrance. Steady flow of water through 2nd eyehole, too small to enter but worth dye testing. No description of entrance given (possibly less than a body length) but connected to what the exploration team believed to be Pol Eighe. Possibly located above 1st chamber of Pol Eighe, 1st chamber collapse c. 1975.
Alternate Names: Pol Eighe, File Pot
Notes: Discovered by GSG, 6 Oct. 2007. All the GPS coordinates appear to be wrong (possibly due to confusion in the directions leading visitors to different landmarks - the corner of the plantation described in the original directions, marked now by a single tree and a fence post, is not the same as the corner of the current woodland).
The Traligill Basin part of the Ben More Assynt Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Hydrographic Feeds: Small stream on north side of Glen
Hydrographic Resurgences: Small stream feeding into River Traligill
