Archaeology Notes

NM73NE 4 779 351

NM 779 351. It is recorded (de St Fond 1907) that, in 1784, an unworked pillar of grey granite, measuring 0.9 metres in breadth, 0.6 metres in average thickness and 2.75 metres in height stood on the highest point of Eilean Musdile. It was probably removed during the building operations for the construction of the lighthouse [NM74NE 5.00] in 1833.

RCAHMS 1975; B F de St Fond 1907.
