Scope and Content Dun Anlaimh crannog on Loch nan Cinneachan, Coll, Argyll and Bute The island dwelling, or crannog, of Dun Anlaimh is located towards the north end of Loch nan Cinneachan, Coll. It lies about 25m from the east shore of the loch and is connected to the shore by a partly submerged and slightly curved causeway. Loch nan Cinneachan and Loch Anlaimh were originally one loch. The island is man-made and the remains of three rectangular, dry-stone buildings are visible. Two are placed end to end and share a wall. The third is less clear and lies against the west wall (left) of the two main structures. The causeway can be seen joining the island to the shore. The name Anlaimh is the Gaelic form of Olaf and local legend describes this place as the last habitation of the Norwegians on Coll. The remains of the Dun Anlaimh crannog are of uncertain date but resemble certain fortified islands of medieval type identified in the Outer Hebrides. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
