Situated on a gentle, north-facing slope down to the southern bank of Dunbeath Water, Dail-a-bhoich consists of an enclosure complex, a long-house, an ancillary structure and a large kiln barn. The long-house is approximately 50m long by 4m wide and is divided into 5 rooms. A very typical deserted settlement cluster. The kiln barn has opposing doorways.
Roy's Map (1747-55) shows a cluster of four buildings with the name "Dalrach" in this vicinity.
