(NN 0959 2448) Crannog (NR)

OS 1:10,000 map, (1976)

Investigation in 1972 by a naval sub-aqua team under the direction of Dr T D McArdle of Edinburgh University confirmed that this island in Loch Awe is a crannog. It contained a harbour which faced the western tip of the island of Inishail, and which may have been constructed of wood, supported at base by shallow heaps of stones. Only the stones remain. Inside the harbour area the surface is covered with small-size stones to give a sure footing when climbing up on to the crannog.
