Archaeology Notes

NM56SW 17 5202 66312

A possible charcoal burning platform was recorded here during a survey of part of Ardnamurchan Estate on the north shore of Loch Sunart, North Argyll. the site consists of a circular area, 7m in diameter and within a natural terrace. The natural features of the site would require little work to make into such a platform. Stones lie around the circumference and may have been cleared from the interior, which is now stone-free.
