(NB 1975 3990) Dun (LB)

OS 6" map, (1965)

This dun consists of a stone rampart built round the margin of a small island. The exterior diameter NW-SE is 46' and from NE-SW is 36'. On the western side the outer facing of the wall, which seems to have been at least 6' thick, still shows in places a height of about 4' in position.

RCAHMS 1928, visited 1914.

This dun is now a tumbled heap of stones, heavily over-grown with heather, at the N end of a small island. No wall faces are visible, and there is no sign of the entrance. The island is connected to the shore on the N by the ruins of a causeway c.16.0m long.

Revised at 1/10,000.

Visited by OS (A A) 30 June 1969.
