This ancient Sweat House near Lecamy remains perfectly intact and is a beehive shaped structure of approximately 7ft in height. It was used in the past as a sort of 'Sauna Bath' for the cure of rheumatism etc with a turf fire being lit inside to heat the building. Its dating is unknown but is a very interesting part of history.
