Constructed very much like an igloo, but using rocks rather than ice, beehive dwellings are thought to have been constructed in the last few hundred years as summer sheilings.

To get to the the sheilings, follow the track to Morsgail Lodge for about 2 miles. Turn left over the bridge following the path around Loch Morsgail, leaving the path at the South-east corner of the loch and follow the path until you come across the sheilings below the western slopes of Scalabhal.
