Archaeology Notes

NG53NE 147 5599 3517 (centred)

A raised oval mound, 7m x 4.5m, was recorded here during a field survey of the Suisnish area of Raasay by ACFA, who have conducted surveys on the island every year since 1995. An investigation revealed the mound to be comprised of gravelly earth and is thought to be the result of clearance work.
