Archaeology Notes

NG40SW 4 402 023.

The settlement of Camas Pliasgaig comprises the remains of seven buildings situated on a spur between two streams; an eighth building lies on the shore, 70m to the NE. The buildings vary in size from 3.2m by 1.8m to 9.3m by 3.7m internally. Around the settlement, particularly on the W, there are traces of rig-and-furrow cultivation.

It is probably one of the 'little hamlets' noted by Pennant in 1772 and appears on the maps of Langlands and Thomson.

Visited by RCAHMS May 1983.
