NR 4425 5191 A programme of surveying was undertaken in April 2017 as part of the Ardtalla Landscape Project, a collaborative project between Kilmartin Museum and Reading University, which forms part of the wider Islay Heritage Project. The survey area is located on the Ardtalla Estate in the SE of Islay. A detailed survey of Dun Fhinn was undertaken and a walkover survey conducted on the surrounding landscape. This involved the survey of the deserted settlements of Craigfhinn, Ballore and Staoin while other unnamed settlements were also recorded along with a

number of upland shieling sites.
