Archaeology Notes

NL58SW 5 c. 549 802.

Muir (T S Muir 1885) notes the remains of a 'cairn or dolmen' near the lighthouse on the Island of Berneray. It is 'down a bit, in another direction' to the nearby dun (NL58SW 4).

T S Muir 1885.

No further information could be obtained locally concerning this alleged 'chambered cairn', and its position could not be located during field investigation.

Visited by OS (R B) 18 May 1965.
