NB35SE 43.05 3850 5350 Crofting Township

Two phases of development of this site are decernable from the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Isle of Lewis, Ross-shire 1853, sheet 5). The 1st phase is a township on the banks of Allt Glas. Three isolated sites (NB35SE 43.02-.04) may also be of this phase. The second phase is the development of the crofting township which remains to the present. Also depicted are some lengths of head-dyke, as well as an extensive system of head-dykes (NB45SW 31) to the SE, which may be partly associated with this crofting township.
