Archaeology Notes

NF98SW 9 9097 8026.

Dunan: A rocky promontory on the E side of Loch Borve, near its mouth, is the site of a dun which is now entirely obliterated.

RCAHMS 1928.

The site of this dun may be at NF 9097 8026, on a rocky promontory measuring 31 x 21.0m, which has slight traces of walling, constructed of large coursed stones in the centre. The name, however, is not known locally and there is no knowledge of a dun at this site.
