NM80SE 39 8671 0252.

(NM 867 026).Crannog, Ederline Loch. There is a stony mound, with low bushes growing on it close to the W shore of Ederline Loch. It has a probable causeway, clear on air photographs, leading through the reeds between it and the bank.

NM 8672 0253. This crannog measured 6m in diameter and 0.3m high (when the level of the loch was high). It is composed of small rounded stones, with no apparent structure, although below water level the stones do not seem to have been disarranged and are still well set. A causeway could not be confirmed, the average depth of water between crannog and shore being c. 2.0m.

Surveyed at 1/2500.

Visited by OS (D W R) 12 October 1971.

Situated some 60m from the W shore, this crannog measures about 6m in diameter above present water-level and doubtless considerably more at its base; it is likely that there was a causeway between the crannog and the adjacent shore.
